Turnkey sharpener by Noam Bar Yochai for Monkey Business

Competition: we've teamed up with Israeli design brand Monkey Business to offer readers the chance to win one of five silver pencil sharpeners by Noam Bar Yochai that resemble clockwork keys. 

Congratulations to the winners! Federico Guidotto in Italy, Jean-Marc Commenge in France, Hrvoje Skender in Croatia, Carla Sulaiman in Australia and Adeleh Nejati in the USA all won a Turnkey pencil sharpener from Monkey Business.

Instead of turning the pencil in the sharpener, users hold the pencil still and twist the cast-metal key. It's also available from Monkey Business in bright red.

We recently featured a set of pins produced by Monkey Business that can be stuck onto wine corks to create animal toys at the dinner table.

    Looks like it'd have a nice tactile feel. I'm no ergonomics expert, but I think that this product may work well for people with say, arthritis?

    Such a shame it uses so much packaging though : (

    Yes very smart design. Quirky, simple but makes a lot of sense. Hopefully the usage is just as good. I also agree on above comment about the packaging. These days it may be a deterrent for those concerned with the environment. Maybe the next step for this project? :)

    Wow, that packaging is ridiculous for a sharpener.
