Zirconia Sharpener : A Simple Product Gets Redesigned for Smooth Sharpening Experience

For drawings and note taking, we always sharpen our pencils. Submitted by Chengtao Yi and Bryan Wong, they believe a pencil sharpener made with beautiful and durable material is functional hence leads to desirability. For the love of beauty and simplicity, and of course, the magic of analog, Zirconia Sharpener is honest and thoughtful product. This project aims to reinterpret the analog pencil sharpener that we’re already familiar with, a product that we trust and use everyday. The blade and body are made from zirconia and fused into a single uni-body block. By utilizing zirconia’s material property, the blade doesn’t need to be changed and offers a smooth sharpening experience.
