This listing is for one Orange Panasonic Pana-Point KP22A Pencil Sharpener, the model illustrated in the images above.

I acquired several of these Orange Pana-Points in the past, and offered the first one on Etsy several weeks ago. Magically it wound up on blogs around the world and on Fancy. Since it was spotted on TheFancy.com, it's been Fancy'd over 3,190 times -- and counting!

Having no idea that the sharpeners would achieve international fame (the first one was posted on blogs originating in Japan and Germany) I did not clean and polish all of them before listing the first one.

Several of these orange Pana-Points are presently in line on the bench, where they will receive a thorough cleaning and polishing before shipping One is ready to ship! All are in good vintage condition and work like a charm.

So ---- For your studio or office, consider acquiring a bright orange** 1970s vintage Pana-Point Panasonic electric pencil sharpener. Made in Japan and built to last!

If you love pencils with needle-sharp points, this hip sharpener is for you. Its amazing engineering allows it to sharpen pencils to pointed perfection - even after forty-odd years. :)

Bright orange plastic body, with a simple transparent pull-out drawer to capture and remove shavings. Has its original creamy white heavy-duty cord.

The sharpener accepts standard-sized pencils (like the #2 yellow one in these images.)

The example currently available has some vintage-related defects which are the reason it is less expensive than the other example recently sold: a small nick in the plastic "cannon" tube's left curve near the top towards the motor stand, a small hairline in the transparent pull-out drawer's back panel, and a small disturbance to the finish in a visually obscure area unseen unless you remove the shavings drawer. And one of the four black soft rubbery disc feet has a split in it; the other three still act as suction cups and hold the sharpener to the desk or table/counter surface well while the sharpener is doing its work. If you would like to see pics of these small defects please ask -- I'll make new images for you. In terms of sharpening pencils, the sharpener is cleaned, in working order, and ready to go!

Overall measurements: about 7.5 inches long, 4.25 inches tall, and 4.25 inches wide.

Put this lovely on your desk or workbench and enjoy the attention it will get -- this pencil sharpener's uniquely sculptured geometric form is a total "wow!" for everyone who sees it.


Go on -- Make your desk a destination event! :)

This item weighs 4 pounds naked and is too big to travel safely in a Flat Rate Priority Mail box. Yeah, bummer. I will, however, ship it in the US (lower 48) via USPS Priority Mail, my packaging, with insurance and delivery confirmation. :)
