#2 Pencil Case

This has the same mechanism built into it as the Twisty Pencil Case minus the twist movement.

Every so often I come up with a design that perfectly meshes function and puzzle together. It is a great challenge to make a puzzle and yeat still have be used as a utilitarian object. Here I have my best representation of function and puzzle up to date.

The #2 Pencil Case is designed for holding pencils, and it conveniently has a pencil sharpener built in to it. You may also notice that it has a secret compartment that is somehow magically locked. This type of mechanism is more of a riddle than a puzzle. Like all good riddles, you must clear your mind of all premonitions to solve it properly.
