Planetary Sharpener

From 2010 Blog
- While I make my living managing high tech and I'm a certified gadget loving geek, there are a few old fashion things I just love. Fountain pens, mechanical watches and the good ole graphite pencil are some of my favorites. If you use pencils - then you must have a sharpener. Like those found in school classrooms, these are the cylindrical cutters of my sharpener. They are also called "planetary sharpeners", in reference to their use of planetary gears. Canon 40D, 1/40 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 800, 50mm macro.

Do the planetary gears need resharpening?
