Thanks to Matthias Meckel for pointing out on his stationery blog, Bleistift, the United Office desktop sharpener Lidl UK are currently selling. As with all Lidl special purchases – once its gone, it’s gone. A quick review:

It has rubber pencil grips that leave no marks; makes a lovely point (two grades of sharpening via CW or CCW winding of the handle); the action of the handle is robust and smooth; and the rubber desk vice is strong. In fact, the build quality of the whole unit is great. It comes in blue or black and it only costs £3.49.

I got three. One for my home office; one for my work office; and one for a friend.
