"The whole thing started with two metal cars, my wife bought for me as a gift in 1989"..."Little did she know I would take off running with the idea."..."I now have over 3000 different sharpeners, with NO duplicates in here."  "Paul retired in 1988 thus a hobby was needed, the pencil sharpeners came at the perfect time."  Excerpt from Aug., 2007 edition of OhioTraveler by Beverly Johnston.
