Brass Pencil Sharpener
DUX Brass Pencil Sharpeners are high-quality sharpeners that stand the test of time with German-made precision and old-fashioned care.
Adjustable brass sharpener from DUX: At the beginning of the 50´s, DUX developed a sharpener which makes it possible to set the sharpness of the pencil point in three variations. The impetus arose out of inquiries from users in different disciplines who wanted to have the leads of their pencils at different sharpnesses. A technical draughtsman or an architect, for example, likes a very sharp point, while a designer or an artist prefers a rather blunt pencil for his sketches. The variable sharpener developed by DUX takes account of these different applications. A knurl attached to the end of the sharpener makes it possible to adjust it for three different pencil points. The knurl can be heard and felt clicking into place when it is turned. Depending on the setting, the pencil is allowed to enter more or less deeply into the interior of the sharpener. The precisely set angle between the cone and the blade ten produces the desired point.
