Pencil Sharpener


While at a museum I found this pencil sharpener.


 It looks a lot like the old Action Fleet Starship Troopers gun.


I got four of them.


 In this color it looks very steam punk.


 I am sure it will find an important place in my miniature warfare.

There are literally hundreds of different items made under the guise of pencil sharpener by these same people. I suspect they are skirting some import rules or tariffs or other regulations by calling their toys or trinkets a pencil sharpener.

What scale?

Mike Creek said...

Tsold9000 since it's a sci fi item it could work for any number of scales. I intend to use it with 1/72nd scale figures. More photos soon.

A link to a few of these items would be useful. It might kick off a whole new genre of war-games, Sharpener Wars! Yeah, Col. Sharpener could lead his Sharpeners Rifles against the 'Le Stilo' and his le penpals....I've taken this too far haven't I?....

These items vary in size and scale.
