Fargo Wood Chipper Pencil Sharpener

Fargo Wood Chipper 2013 Dave Delisle

As far as geeky office stationary goes, the red Swingline stapler from Office Space is both iconic and emblematic of the film it is associated with. I believe there needs to be more office solutions that are in the same vein as the Milton’s prized stapler.

With that in mind I have devised this tandem: an electric pencil sharpener that looks like a wood chipper, and a detachable pencil eraser that looks like a sock-covered foot. This is a fun reference to the (SPOILER) gruesome wood chipper scene at the end of Fargo.

I made the above animation for the purpose of humor. The pencil would not be tossed about when sharpened. Also the external case to hold pencil shavings is one option; a reservoir beneath the wood chipper would probably be a lot tidier.

¬†These wouldn’t be ‘replica props’ like the Swingline stapler, however I feel they provide a very unique take on everyday pencil sharpeners and erasers. I’d put them on my back-to-school shopping list that is for sure.
