SIPSHere’s a good old fashioned “find” that blends a couple of things I like – vintage cameras and pencils. The Sharp Image Pencil Sharpener, available from the very cool Mod Cloth, is a fun way to keep your pencils sharpened and have something cool on your desk.

About the Sharp Image Pencil Sharpener: “As a self-proclaimed photography geek, you’ve never met a camera – old or new – that you didn’t love. Allow us the pleasure of introducing you to this adorable pencil sharpener by Kikkerland, beautifully molded from plastic in the image of a vintage camera. When you can’t be out in the world snapping shots, use this cutie – as featured in Country Living – to keep your passion close to you, even when you’re pulling long hours working hard at your desk. Simply press the button at the top right hand side, slide your pencil into the hole in the top lens, and crank away to get a perfectly sharpened pencil while still indulging your shutterbug sensibilities.”

I wish I had this sharpener back in the day when I took my SATs. I would have been able to sharpen the two #2 pencils I broke while taking the exam – you would be now reading a much better post from a Harvard, Stanford and Oxford graduate.

The Sharp Image Pencil Sharpener is available from Mod Cloth.
