Can't decide if he is serious or not. Here is how I sharpen pencils. In the 9:27 minutes of this video I can sharpen many pencils perfectly.

Boy am I glad I saw this. I learned, or thought I learned how to sharpen a pencil with a jack knife at my father's knee. But he neglected to tell me how lucrative it could be, and how exacting. If David Rees would have been my mentor, I would would be making a lot more money now. Who knew?! Apparently he did, he just didn't tell me in time, so it is all the fault of David that I am not lounging in Cabo San Lucas with a delightful drink, instead of here drinking left over iced tea!
