How to sharpen pencils – an instructional video

Check out this very accurate guide on the subject of pencil sharpening, a truly necessary skill in modern life.

(Though our resident master of blade sharpening and other frustrating pursuits notes that the technique demonstrated in the video for turning the blade on the leather strop is faulty, the blade should be turned on its spine to minimize the risk for cutting the leather, and the stropping should last at least 2 minutes to have any considerable effect on the keenness of the edge)

Thanks to the for posting about this gem!
