Hema pencil sharpener 2649


Classic sharpener from the former East Germany. The 2649 is the final model of the famous East German sharpener originated by HEinrich, a brand based in MArkleeberg that dated back to before the war. Developed in the final decade of the country’s existence, it is an absolute collector’s item whose predecessors were made of more desirable materials, such as bakelite and cast iron. Inside, however, its famed and rare 2.5 cm cylinder cutter still works.

Reading and writing together form the basis of people’s ability to engage with culture. In the art of reading, these skills are combined at the latest in the annotation and extraction of information from a text. Traditional stationery shops, whose job it is to sell writing instruments, have slipped into a sleepy routine. This is where we come in to revive the scene with products developed in-house and a highly cultured offering. Starting with the writing tools drawer, in which you can “configure” your own pen using the best refills and beautiful casings, we then gradually fill other drawers with instruments for gathering, organising and storing information – both manually and digitally. The vast majority of the items below are made in Germany or by specialists in Europe, Japan or the USA. We develop selected products under the established Continental brand.
