New Arrival: Faber-Castell Janus 4048

It has arrived! The whole was very well packaged in a small Swarowski box (yep, pun intended).

Original packaging, almost pristine.

The Janus was wrapped in some paper, that felt waxed or something.

  1. Ah the days when even pencil sharpeners came in nice boxes with instructions! Is that blade reversible? Nice touch if it is. Does it stay curved or is that only when it’s screwed in place? I’ve never seen this sharpener before you featured it. And yes do a video please.

  2. Wow is right. That might be the nicest one of those in existance. I believe Gunther wrote about this sharpener–it makes a seriously concave long point.
