Kastor pencil sharpener by Alessi

H 8 cm / W 10 cm / D 5 cm


Materials Stainless steel 18/10

Stainless steel 18/10

The Kastor pencil sharpener has been designed by Rodrigo Torres. Kastor is poised and ready to gnaw on the tip of the pencil. The design has been studied in great detail: eyes, teeth, paws and tail all contribute to defining the animal’s form. Kastor is practical and easy to use: by placing the pencil in the beaver’s mouth, you can sharpen it with extreme ease thanks to the sharpener located inside. Thanks to the Sharpener’s solid construction, it also makes an ideal paperweight.
