Professional Pencil Sharpener Sold His 500th Pencil

In 2010, cartoonist David Rees started an artisanal pencil sharpening service (covered previously on Neatorama by John). This lead to a book, nay, a manifesto, in which David spilled his pencil sharpening secrets: How to Sharpen Pencils: A Practical & Theoretical Treatise on the Artisanal Craft of Pencil Sharpening for Writers, Artists, Contractors, Flange Turners, Anglesmiths, & Civil Servants

Last week, David stopped by Salt Lake City, Utah, to give a reading. There, he sold his 500th pencil to ... our pal and NeatoBot illustrator Adam Koford! Fun times were had by all. Check out David's story over at his Tumblr blog: Link
