Getting the right point on a pencil is really a matter of skill and expertise. Most people need to know how to achieve the perfect pencil point to match the job. Deep in New York's Hudson River Valley, craftsman David Rees - the world's number one #2 pencil sharpener - still practises the age old art of manual pencil sharpening. How To Sharpen Pencils is a book, a manifesto and a fully-illustrated walk-through of the many, many, many ways to sharpen a pencil. Delivered with pencil-sharp wit and hilarity, this is the authoritative guide to a dying art.
