One of the most common reasons for broken pencil sharpeners occurs when the user forgets to empty the container which holds the discarded pencil shavings. To combat this wastefulness, one designer sought to create a transparent device, with a shavings-catcher that's easily visible and accessible. The stylish new device is one which any student or office worker could display with pride.

The Stratum Pencil Sharpener is a sleek fixture which features a long glass body and a durable white marble top. The top contains a convenient opening for one to sharpen their pencil, while the glass body offers complete transparency for the user. This device would allow for a seamless method of shaving disposal, ensuring the safe keeping of valuable writing equipment.
