Beautifully made wooden base holds the Høvel well. But you have to get used to sharpening pencils in the base as the hovel can flip up.
As I am an artist I am happy to use it for my pencils. I love it.
Great ! Beautiful in walnut !
Makes it easier to use and collects the bit. Great to have somewhere to store the sharpener when not in use. Suggest that it should be an integral part of the Hovel.
Good wooden base to hold and display your unique pencil sharpener tool
Nice fit for display as well as storage.
A nice accessory to the sharpener. Allows for setting the sharpener on the counter/workbench top and collects the shavings. Also looks great.
Fits perfectly... love that now the shavings are contained!
Finely engineered item, very happy!
Like this as the small plain fits neatly inside.
It catches the shavings and is a lovely accessory. Doesn't improve my drawing skills but makes the experience more pleasant.
It is beautifully made and makes the Hovel easier to grip. And it is gorgeous walnut.
Love it. Keeps the shavings in one place and it is beautifully made. Thank you. Another great product.
Classic show case for the hovel great way to bring out the product
I got the Hovel Holder, clearly to hold my new Hovel. It’s beautiful made. Makes the tool a work of art while waiting patiently to be used.
I couldn't imagine my pencil planer without it's case. They go together like peas & carrots!
I am so glad I opted for the base. It keeps the blade on the plane safe from nicks and it keeps me safe from an accidental nick of me.
Well made-fits perfectly, feels good in my hand
Great little holder for my classy new little pencil plane!
Lovely piece of kit, well made very elegant sitting next to The Iris, complement each other,
Lovely holder for sharpener
Really allows you to display & keep the Hovel safe
Exactly what we wanted!

I bought them as a gift for my son and he loves all the pieces. Thanks very much.
What good would the Høvel be without a beautiful way to show it off! The walnut base is a fantastic display platform, and also a utilitarian holder for the Høvel when doing "reverse" planing.
Aesthetically pleasing, the function is perfect and I like it! A nice piece of kit to have on the workbench or desktop.
A pleasing container.
Beautiful practical products. Love them
Well made and very attractive.
Very well built and exceptional materials, will last for years.
Its just what a wood worker needs to add to his tool bench.

The quality is excellent and truly beautiful. My gift recipient will not only use this pencil sharpener, he will also appreciate the expert workmanship that went into the making of this item.
Love it! It looks beautiful and is useful. Thank you!
great product and a perfect housing for the Hovel plane
Beautiful wood grain, perfectly complements the Hovel. Only wish is that the base was similar in weight. The Hovel is SO solid and planted, and to have it sit in a very light (but very gorgeous) base makes it feel top-heavy. This may just be me, but I would have liked the base to have a small metal foot plate to maybe make it a little more anchored. Truly stunning design, highly recommend
It really finish's off the look of the hovel and keeps it safe and makes it look better sitting on the desk!
Waited so long before pulling the trigger on this and it was worth the wait. Used daily I can say that this sharpener is a quality item. Well designed and functions brilliantly. Sometimes you deserve more...
A must have lovingly crafted accompaniment to the gadget, a must have accessory.
Beautifully finished and makes using the sharpener a real joy , with the ability to collect all the shavings
I love this pencil plane! The concept is so unique and the craftsmanship is top-notch. It took me a few tries to adjust the blade to the correct height and then a few more to adapt to a totally different way of sharpening. Once that learning curve was conquered, I find I can keep a fine tip on my graphite that is sturdy, unlike a mechanical pencil. It also works well on colored pencil and chalk. Expensive as pencil sharpeners go but it is beautiful and effective. Well done!
A lot of fun to sharpen pencils and get a lot questions and comments about it.
I have bought Høvel, base and extra blades as a Christmas gift and I’m sure this will be treasured Beautiful!
I purchased the Havel and the wooden base because I admire the simplicity in it design. There are no lights, bells or whistles, It has one function and it does not require any batteries. I enjoy writing, I outline in pencil and finish writing on my computer or in fountain pen ink. The elegance of the written word is something that I have been in love with all my life. The Havel pencil sharping device lends to that. I hope that it will continue, but people are in a hurry to no where fast, slowing down just to sharpen a pencil, like the fountain pen I hope it is not a representative of a bygone era.

Still getting use to the way it works but having said that it’s a work of art that also does what it says on the tin!
My husband just received the pencil sharpener today and dropped it into the wooden storage case. He loved it. What a nice gift for someone who works with wood.
Beautifully crafted wooden rest/holder for the Høvel making it comfortable to use and attractive on the worktable.
The wood base for the Hovel is like icing on the cake. Do you absolutely have to have one? Well let me say this about using it with, I had shaving all over the floor. Could I use something else, maybe but nothing that looks or works as well. I love mine.
This is a must-have to accompany the Hovel sharpener. It provides a fairly sizeable well for collecting the leavings and it allows the sharpener to remain on the desktop rather than having to be held aloft while sharpening. It’s like peanut butter and jelly for pencils.
as advertised; I like it.
Beautiful craftsmanship and the perfect accessory for the sharpener. I think it is a must have.
This is a tool worthy of a craftsman.
It is a fine addition to my Hovel.
This is one reason why they are called writing instruments. Very pleased with my purchase, the product, and the service. Thank-you.
