I’ve heard of people trying to build a better mousetrap. I’ve never heard of anyone trying to build a better pencil sharpener. That is exactly Matt Marrocco hoping to do with his Kickstarter campaign. The project aims to produce electric and manual pencil sharpeners, going by the name IDRAW.
Everything about these sharpeners is designed to give you a perfect point for artwork and sketching. Each one is made from aircraft grade 6061 T6 aluminum and injection molded plastic. The electric pencil sharpener gets power from an internal USB rechargeable battery, while the manual version of course gets its power from your hand.
The device will be offered in satin silver, tactical black, and a limited edition gold anodized finish. A pledge of $25(USD) or more gets you a manual sharpener. A pledge of $65 or more gets you an electric sharpener in basic silver.
