Høvel is an entirely reimagined pencil sharpener. The Høvel pencil plane enables you to whittle your pencil perfectly to any desired point. Its unique mechanism also helps to not break the lead of your pencil, unlike the commonly used sharpener, which twists and snaps graphite. Due to its solid brass body, its weight is a joy, and it gains beauty and character with age. What kind of pencils can Høvel sharpen?
Høvel can sharpen almost any pencil. Its unique design allows you to sharpen any shape of pencil, big or small. And better yet, its planing technique means that you can sharpen soft pencils without breaking the core like a typical twist sharpener.
What is Høvel made of?
Høvel is made of solid machined brass and its blades are made of carefully selected carbon steel. The packaging is made of card and is 100% recyclable.
How resistant is Høvel?
Høvel is designed to last a lifetime, and the brass will patina with time and use. Høvel can be easily polished using Brasso to bring to back to its original shine.
