Artisanal Pencil Sharpening
From the ever-expanding list of odd yet rewarding professions, comes this: New York state-based master craftsman David Rees practicises the ‘age-old art of manual pencil sharpening‘. That’s right. He’s a professional pencil sharpener. What’s more, each pencil you send him is returned with their shavings and a ‘dated certificate authenticating that it is now a dangerous object’. Nice.
