Product Description

Galleons were large sailing ships with multiple decks that were first utilised in Spain to carry armed cargo. They were later adopted by various other European countries during the age of sail, gradually developing into the principal fleet units used as warships during the Anglo-Dutch Wars. These kinds of galleons were a mainstay of maritime commerce until the early 19th century. You can now own a piece of this fascinating history by purchasing a Galleon pencil sharpener from SDL Imports. The visually striking rustic finish will make this a great addition to your stationery kit as well as a decorative piece.
