Sharpening Pencils ASMR ✏ El Casco M-430 Sharpener

GET YOURS HERE:… Possibly the greatest pencil sharpener ever created, the El Casco M-430 Pencil Sharpener will forever change the way you look at a sharpened pencil. Crafted in Spain by a 100-year-old former gun manufacturer, the El Casco pencil sharpener is a brilliant piece of mechanical engineering. What makes this pencil sharpener exceptional is the unique, concave point it creates. The shape of the pencil point extends the sharpness of your pencil and eliminates any initial breaking that occurs with sharp, linear points. If you regularly write with pencils or if you enjoy mechanical desk swag, this will be a purchase, like me, you won’t ever regret. We are offering this as a special group buys with delivery mid-September. Manufactured in steel and zamak. Black lacquered body. Hand-polished copper, nickel and chrome-plated components. Wooden crank handle. Sharpness regulator with four adjustable point lengths. Suction pad base. Dimensions: 110 x 110 x 150 mm. Presented in a gift box. Made in Spain.

Simon Crompton’s New Book: The Finest Menswear in the World

The renowned UK journalist Simon Crompton has just released his new book The Finest Menswear in the World. This book offers analysis on the craftsmanship involved in fine menswear and fine accoutrements. Not only does this book include in-depth features on great artisans, it includes beautiful photography as well. The Hanger Project is excited to offer Simon Crompton’s book for pre-order.


Published by Thames & Hudson September 2015, the hardcover, coffee-table book profiles the raft that lies behind the finest makers of different items of menswear. With over 200-odd pages, the book is full of beautiful imagery from Andy Barnham and some rather in-depth writing from Simon Crompton.

Each of the 14 chapters runs through the aspects of an item of menswear that make it perhaps the finest in the world. So it explains the benefits in cut of a bespoke suit; then the benefits in make of a bespoke suit; it explains how styles vary between houses; and then that Cifonelli has all of those, plus perhaps the finest finishing and greatest creativity.
