Høvel is a pencil sharpener that functions as a miniature plane, allowing you the freedom to achieve any point you like without the hassle of breaking the lead of your pencils like a typical sharpener. It can be used as a long point sharpener, a flat sharpener like what you would achieve with a chisel or knife, or even for making very short and sturdy points.
The blades are easily changed without the need for any tools by using the thumb screw that fastens everything together. The solid brass Høvel by Makers Cabinet weighs in at around 90 grams with a great weighted feel in the hand. Being a precision machined brass piece, Høvel will age beautifully and is made to last a lifetime. This Høvel comes with 10 replacement blades in the box.
Høvel's optional wooden base is perfect for your desk and collects the shavings as you sharpen.

"It’s beautiful! Such a brilliant Kickstarter! Thank you so much for sorting this out so quickly it will take pride of place on my desk! I’ve already had some comments at work and pointed them to your campaign."

"You are not my first Kickstarter project but the reward is clearly the very best of all - I am really very very glad to have one høvel. Please inform me, when you start yet another project!"
"I opted for the brass version: the weight is a joy. Your effort to get brass screws was in my opinion essential... the all brass Hovel looks excellent. The small logo is very discrete. Using the Hovel is a joy short sharp point...long sharp point."
"This is a gorgeous addition to my office. I absolutely love using it. I'm able to get my pencils to last much longer since the graphite is less likely to break as compared to conventional sharpeners!"
