This is not a food/cooking/kitchen related item.

BINGO! We have a winner.

It's an antique pencil sharpener that uses sandpaper.

Those are some pretty interesting pencil sharpeners on that site. It's hard for to me to believe that the engineering effort went into something like that over using a pocket knife..... You would think they would have reached the point where the benefits didn't outweigh the costs.

It's funny, the first thing I thought of when I saw that picture was a pencil sharpener, but I just figured that was too easy! Good job Katie!

Wow, my guess was just a good old-fashioned WAG! I'll try to come up with a good picture. Give me a few.
