Caran d'Ache Limited Matterhorn Red Pencil Sharpener
Since 1933, the Caran d’Ache sharpener has been a favorite tool for generations of schoolchildren, artists and lovers of writing. To celebrate this mechanical icon, Caran d’Ache created a limited model in Swiss red matte lacquer with polished chrome accents. Each piece is numbered with 4,478 (the altitude in meters of the mighty Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps) and presented in a red vintage metal box featuring the brand’s original ad art, retracing the
history of this famous cult object. The solid metal sharpener holds round, hexagonal or triangular pencils and pastels, from 4-10mm in diameter. The butterfly clamps and holding mechanism keep your pencil in position for sharpening. Just turn the crank – no holding necessary!
