2645."Just because something is funny or makes you laugh," says the website, "doesn't mean something isn't real."
David Rees is on a mission. That mission; to bring a craftsman's and artisan's care and skill to the sharpening of a pencil. It works like this: you send David your pencil and pay him $15. He sends it back to you, expertly hand-sharpened, and even sends you back the shavings.
The service, of course, seems absurd - and is. But it's not, apparently, a joke … David will sharpen that pencil if you send him $15 to do it.
And you know what else?
If you don't have a pencil, he'll throw one in.
Such a deal.
