David Rees’ How To Sharpen Pencils Gets a Mini Doc

Wonderful humorist David Rees has not only brought joy to many through his writing, but has also enlightened us all on the discipline of artisanal pencil sharpening. His book How to Sharpen Pencils: A Practical & Theoretical Treatise on the Artisanal Craft of Pencil Sharpening for Writers, Artists, Contractors, Flange Turners, Anglesmiths, & Civil Servants has reminded us of the importance of a sharp No. 2 pencil as well as the hilarious things in life that we often overlook.

Luckily, How To Sharpen Pencils has been made into a short mini doc that is both actually informative as well as damn funny and has been making the rounds at film festivals.

Watch How to Sharpen Pencils as directed by Kenneth Price and written by David Rees himself now.
