Hovel Pencil Plane and Base
The Hovel Pencil Plane offers the benefit of a traditional woodworking plane in the palm of your hand. This unique sharpener works by gently planing thin layers of wood off the pencil, allowing you to create the perfect point.
This set includes a wooden base that functions as a chamber for shavings as you sharpen and looks great on any desk.

I love woodworking, so this was the sharpener for me. I could not be accused of not knowing how to make the thing thing function. The thing is I can get a good nice point (Palomino) but the way it sharpens the point doesn't hold for long, which might be good because you can use your Hovel again! or it might not be so five star.
But 'form' really does outweigh 'function' in this case. A beautiful thing just resting there.
Presumably this base is Walnut? I have read on other sites that it also came in Cherry and Ash at one time? Does it still?
We do not currently carry the leather case. There are 10 extra blades included with the Hovel. The base included in this set is the Walnut version.
Hope this helps,
