Pencil sharpener

Says Monocomplex, "Robots contain a strong kidult factor. There is little difference, only in the form and structure, robots are interesting and fun to both adults and children."

"Pencil sharpening is the principle of sharpening pencil through turning action. Turning the handle, the spiral gear inside turns and sharpens the pencil, and in the front and back of the gear there is a fixed axis which holds it."
