Does your desk lack a certain... gravitas? Around here we recommend filling every ambiguous void with knives. In this case, knives designed to compliment your daily writing needs and terrorize your post-its with all the charm of mysterious megafauna. Kujira knives are what you kneed.
Toru Yamashita, a blacksmith in Japan's Kochi-prefecture, first created a knife modeled after a Sperm Whale to fill a request for a blunt, "kid friendly" knife for sharpening pencils. While delicate (read: uncoordinated; controlling) Western sensibilities might find this odd and dangerous, the resulting knives are clearly a good idea. Add a hand-forged Sperm or Humpback whale to your tabletop ensemble: pencils will stay on-point, coworkers will be shocked and intrigued.
These cute denizens of the deep are ready to gorge on pencils and envelope tops. Alternately, you could easily use them to scare the bejeezus out of your cheezus.
