Bottle Cap Sharpener sharpens pencils, reuses bottles
Another clever concept design, this Bottle Cap Sharpener, designed by Yuchen Liu, is a pencil sharpener that uses a plastic bottle to catch your pencil shavings. Simply screw the sharpener to the mouth of the bottle, like a bottle cap, and you’re ready to go!
The Bottle Cap Sharpener is only a concept design and is not available on the market, but I certainly wouldn’t mind owning one of these.

Chinese designer Mike He, tired of the highly misunderstood figure of Pinocchio, launched a pencil sharpener that is about to reveal the truth: Pinocchio is a totally honest guy, it is you that with your pencil makes him actually lie! And no need to tell that the bigger the pencil, the bigger the lie! The sharpener is called Honest Pinocchio and was presented during the Tokyo Designers Week 2010 with enthusiastic response.

The A. B. Dick Planetary Pencil Pointer was patented in 1896 and sold until the mid-1910s… this antique pencil sharpener held the pencil stationary while two milling disks described what is known as “planetary motion” around the end of the pencil. Like a planet, which revolves about its own axis while it orbits the sun, the cutters on a Planetary revolve about their axes while they orbit the tip of the pencil.
