DUX Double Nostalgie Sharpener 雙孔復古鉛筆刨
A classic DUX product since 1936, these double hole sharpeners are sure to bring back some nostalgic memories.
Made from Duroplast (a close relative of Bakelite and Formica) they have the vintage material to go with the vintage aesthetic. Mounted inside the lid is a double hole sharpener, suitable for all pencils up to 12mm wide.
Duroplast is a fibre-reinforced plastic, most famously used for the bodywork of the Trabant - the people’s car of the German Democratic Republic. While this sharpener does not have space for four adults and luggage, it does have a compact and durable shell, and the strong double-hole sharpener inside could be described as its two-stroke engine. And the thin wooden emissions from a pencil sharpener are a lot better for the environment!
German brand DUX was founded in 1908, and focused mostly in the design and manufacturing of exquisite pencil sharpenes. DUX is a family-run company that produces daily use pencils for technical students.Size: Diameter 5.4cm x Height 6.5cm
