The base functions as a chamber for shavings as you sharpen and looks great on any desk. Both walnut and cork bases make the perfect companion to your Høvel.
Please note the base does not include the Høvel.
Høvel is an entirely reimagined pencil sharpener. Høvel pencil plane enables you to whittle your pencil perfectly to any desired point. Its unique mechanism also helps to not break the lead of your pencil, unlike the commonly used sharpener, which twists and snaps graphite. Due to its solid brass body, its weight is a joy, and it gains beauty and character with age. Make short, long or even flat points. By changing the angle while sharpening, you can achieve an endless variety of points, perfectly suited to your practice. Høvel works with all pencils.
Makers Cabinet was founded in 2017 by a team of designers, Odin Ardagh, Benjamin Weininger and Noah Bier. The three founders who met while studying Product Design at Central Saint Martins were dissatisfied with the disposable and wasteful nature of the stationery market and wanted to change that. It began with a simple idea, re-imagining the way we sharpen pencils. Since then, they have created a range of original and exciting heirloom quality tools, elevating the drawing and writing experience to an art form.
