If there is anything quirky or if there is a particular stationery need that you have, chances are, Japanese stationery has already got a solution for you.
The T’Gaal multisharpener is a pencil sharpener that solves an issue I didn’t realise I had. Have you ever had a specific preference for the way a pencil is sharpened in terms of point angle? I didn’t realise that I do, but I did notice that I certainly prefer some points to others.
My initial reason for purchasing this pencil sharpener was to have a sealable pencil sharpener that would prevent pencil shavings spilling out into my drawer and pencil case. This sharpener certainly solves this problem. It also provides 5 different angles at which you can sharpen your pencils.
There is a distinct difference between the different angles available so its not just a gimmick. I have actually utilised the different angles available since purchasing this sharpener – the 1st setting (the widest angle) for colouring pencils and the 5th (the narrowest angle) for writing and lead pencils. The sharpener also sharpens cleanly and smoothly.
I don’t know if there is a specific benefit to each of the angles provided for any particular use other than personal preference, but I enjoy and utilise the settings now that I have them available. Yes, it’s a bit more than your average pencil sharpener that you can pick up at your office supply store or school supplies section but really, in the grand scheme of stationery upgrades, this is probably not your biggest concern.
