The HØVEL Pencil Plane

There is something satisfying about an object that is heavy and solid.

This is a Høvel Pencil Plane for sharpening pencils, in case, you hadn’t guessed. Ben bought it for me for Xmas. It is, to be honest, quite tricky to use. My electric pencil sharpener is much easier! (Yes – I do have one. Are you surprised?)

However this solid chunk of brass is simply delightful to hold and use, and that’s good enough for me.
