Gone are the days when we used to get products that last long. Really, really long. The one that you see above, a pencil sharpener from Mitsubishi, is reportedly 40 years old (older than me) and it still works. And it will probably be working for many years to come. The device also allows you to adjust the sharpness of the pencil.

Is there any new device out there that will last for the next four decades? Probably not, right?
