Old Portfolio - Origami Sharpener

Origami Sharpener - The simple beauty of Japanese Origami lies in the art of understatement.

This sharpener derives its appeal from the same essence - by creating structure, function and form out of simple sheet
material, using simple processes.

Via metal stamping and grinding, it is literally ‘folded’ out of a single sheet of stainless steel.

The folds create volumes for ergonomic handling and also forms the channel walls to guide pencils into place; the grinded edge forms the shaving blade.
