Comrade Dan (a very good Comrade of mine) sent some photos of a sharpener at the school he went to, in its present state.
He tells us that this sharpener has been there since he was in school. Mr. Dan and I are…not so young these days; it’s been there for quite some time!
I love the groves worn into the wood from decades of turning the crank.
