Home Sharpener

A walnut pencil sharpener in the shape of a little house. This item is part of the Hitotoki (Good Woods) product line from Alte Meister, a maker of Buddhist altars and related goods. While a wide variety of beautiful wood is used to make Buddhist altars, the manufacturing process inevitably generates offcuts. Previously, offcuts were burned in furnaces that helped to dry timber. The Hitotoki line was created to make better use of offcuts. Each item in the Hitotoki collection draws attention to the sensual appeal of different kinds of wood. While only a small item, the Home Sharpener's beautiful, unadorned walnut is a pleasure to look at and touch.
