Very compact, elegant looking, and efficiently restores sharp points on 5.5 and 5.6 mm leads. Word of advice: I would recommend to use it exclusively for graphite leads to maximize the useful life of the sharp blades. I have prematurely clogged and dulled built-in lead pointers sharpening dry sanguine and charcoal drawing leads.

Stick to lead!
I love the little cube shape and color of this sharpener. I plugged it up sharpening a oil sanguine lead, wish I'd read the other review here first. But some smashing it on a hard surface cleaned the clog out quickly. After that I've used it with dry leads only and it has worked well since then.

This creates a a very durable short squat point. It's great as part of a sketching kit.

I have mixed feelings about this. I like more of a point with my pencils, but this seams to make a really shallow point. I'll find a way to use it. But if you're really looking to keep a fine point on your tool, you should probably look elsewhere.

It does its job, but I tend to spill graphite on everything if I do not immediately clean it when done.
