Not Kum's best, the pencil sharpener actually chews up the triangular pencils, the 10mm side is huge, even my fattest pencils are loose in the hole. The top is hard to turn so I keep it open. Also the shavings fall out of the sharpener while your sharpening. I have several Kum sharpeners and they are great, I'll probably just end up using this one without the case over a garbage can because the sharpener itself is excellent quality.

Very sharp blades and makes a wonderful crisp pencil point.

My difficulty with this sharpener is it isn't quite slim enough to be really portable, but not quite thick enough to collect a lot of shavings. They made a strange compromise with the size.

Also, fine wood shavings and graphite bits leak out of the pencil sharpener unless you're careful to rotate the top back to the closed position after use. The top is a little too snug to convenient slide back closed, but any looser and it would probably pop off.

If they had simply made the metal sharpener core flush to the outer edge little would leak out and you wouldn't need to close it.

I prefer the long-point sharpener, or a cheap barrel-shaped sharpener with the hole in the top, instead.
