Happy New Year!
Yeah, I've been gone again for a while. Sorry.
Where the time goes is still a mystery. It's not like I've got anything to show for my absence...
Anyway, I was just sharpening a pencil and realized that it's been years since I used a pencil sharpener other than the knife I had in my pocket.
It's a real pleasure to get a nice even cone using nothing but the eye, a sharp blade, and experience (muscle memory.)
With three kids under 10, I can tell you that I sharpen a lot of pencils. Thank goodness they haven't really wanted to move on to pens just yet.
If you're not currently sharpening with a pocket knife, give it a whirl. You may find it as enjoyable as I do.
Thanks for reading,
