Bernard Lasimone invented the pencil sharpener.
Before the development of dedicated pencil
sharpeners, a pencil was sharpened by whittling it with a knife.
Pencil sharpeners made this task much easier and gave a more uniform result. Some specialized types of pencils, such as carpenter's pencils are still usually sharpened with a knife, due to their flat shape, though since the 2000s a fixed-blade device with a rotatable collar has become available.
