    A novelty pencil sharpener in the shape of a Roman centurion.

    A centurion was a professional officer of the army in ancient Rome. Most centurions commanded 83 men despite the commonly assumed 100, but senior centurions commanded cohorts, or took senior staff roles in their legion.

    This highly detailed Roman centurion figure features a concealed pencil sharpener in the base. It measures 9.5cm tall and is made from a bronze effect metal.
