These are made by Norpro and look like a big pencil sharpener with a handle. They are great - I think you can get them from Amazon.com.
Add an elegant touch with this handy curler. Just like sharpening a pencil, you can have ribbons of carrots for garnishing. Use also with squash, zucchini and parsnips. Dishwasher safe, 4-3/4" long.
I've been looking everywhere for the same thing, and I found it!
It's called a Beriner BN5 Vegetable Turning Slicer. (At least that's the Brand and Model that I was looking for.) If you type that into a Google search, it will show MANY listings! I found it on several sites, the cheapest had it for $79.95, it's usually around 100.00. I was looking for the one with a fine blade, because some of the other brands and models only come with three blade, which does not include a fine blade. So, good luck! And remember to use Google.com, because I've tried yahoo and other search engines and they didn't show it :)
To make carrot curls, cut thin strips of medium sized carrots with a vegetable peeler. Roll each strip and fasten with a tooth pick. Chill in ice water.. Remove toothpicks and serve. Makes beautiful garnish for plates and soups.

Pampered Chef, which does in-home presentations probably has a website. I have seen their apple peeler in action. You would need to ask if that works on carrots or if they have a separate item for carrots. http://www.pamperedchef.com
