How much wood can a woodchuck chuck . . . aw, who cares? The point is,
the pencil point that is, is that this adorable little beaver can chew
enough wood to keep your pencils sharp for a lifetime. Not only that, he
does double duty as a paperweight. Since beavers process wood with their teeth it is appropriate that you sharpen your pencil by sticking it in his mouth.
Kastor, The Beaver Pencil Sharpener By Alessi
The chrome-plated Kastor (French for beaver) comes from Alessi Italian Design Factory. Designer Rodrigo Torres created the little "desk pet" with clean, modern lines to give it a professional appearance that will be appropriate in even the most formal office setting.
There is an added benefit to having the beaver design as a totem in your office -- in Native American lore the beaver has the ability to be productive and persistent, and is capable of using all resources at his disposal. Beaver is a determined, hard worker who will not give up until the job is done.
