Filed under Gifts for the Person Who Has Everything: It’s a Hitler Toy Devil Pencil Holder from (where else, but) Japan! The 7-inch resin statue was designed by Atsushi “Madnessatsushi” Honda, who graduated from the Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music with a diploma in “worldly thoughts”.
Each hand-painted Hitler Devil Pencil Holder provides you with the satisfaction of piercing your favorite writing implement into the eyesocket of a conveniently placed skull. (I want to see somebody stick a Montblanc in this…) Meanwhile, the base bears the wisdom: “The pen is mightier than the sword.”
Some people might not be able to get past the Hitler ‘stache, but the Japanese interest in the Fuhrer appears to be benignly steeped in kitsch. For a pricey pen holder that’s guaranteed to stir up conversation, black and green colorways are available online for ~ $80 USD here. Click through for more photos.
