Kastor: a desk pet reinterprets a classic desk typology. Pencil sharpener in chrome-plated zamak. The Pencil sharpener Kastor has been designed by Rodrigo Torres. Kastor is poised and ready to gnaw on the tip of the pencil. The design has been studied in great detail: eyes, teeth, paws and tail all contribute to defining the animal's form. Kastor is practical and easy to use: by placing the pencil in the beaver's mouth, you can sharpen it with extreme ease thanks to the sharpener located inside. Thanks to the Sharpener's solid construction, it also makes an ideal paperweight.

Looks great, but relied on response to question, this is not electric but manual.
