This is a collaborative item between Blackwing and Makers Cabinet to create a unique sharpening experience. The Blackwing Høvel allows you to create custom pencil points tailored to your specific needs. It offers the benefits of a traditional woodworking plane right in the palm of your hand.
Create your custom point by holding the Høvel at both ends with your dominant hand and shaving directly away from yourself until you've reached your desired point. Adjust the angle of the Høvel and the depth of the blade to achieve a variety of different points.
The Blackwing Høvel is made from black anodized aluminum and includes a matching black wooden base. This set also includes 10 carbon steel replacement blades.
