DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
Only wooden pencil connoisseurs know that all sharpened wooden pencils are not created equal. The length of the sharpened lead core can make a big difference in a \"make it or break it\" lead experience. This pencil sharpener, a 2004 winner of the Japan Good Design award, allows you to adjust the length of the sharpened lead core. Numbers are labeled on a dial, the larger the number the longer the sharpened lead core. Levels range from 1 to 5. The sharpener has two holes, one for standard wooden pencils and one for colored pencils.

Best pencil sharpener...

Best pencil sharpener I have ever used. From electronic to generic Staples pencil sharpeners, this pencil sharpener easily outclasses all the rest. Lead breakage is rare unless it's from the pencil's lead problem. The cut is very very clean. The orb/ball thing allows to you vary the sharpness of the lead and the highest level gives a very sharp point.

My only complaint is that even with the cover, lead shavings do leak and escape if you shake it. Not a big problem considering I usually empty it before going anywhere.

I love this sharpener!...

I love this sharpener! And it works great for the triangular Uni Penmanship pencils; the Kum two-hole "triangular and hexagonal" sharpener I tried first didn't. The Kum's small hole was too small for the Uni and the large hole was too large, causing me to use up too much of the pencil trying to get a good point, and I still didn't manage to get a good point. This Stad sharpener is perfect, though. The colored pencil hole puts a great point on the triangular Uni without any waste. Nice pocketable (blue jeans) size, too, but make sure to empty it first; I ended up with a pocketful of pencil shavings one day because the top somehow popped off. Another nice feature is that this sharpener was obviously designed to fit the hand perfectly while in use; feels extremely natural, secure and comfortable while sharpening.

Great sharpener, it doesn't break pencil leads that my other sharpeners will. The pencil shaving it makes is also one long piece instead of little shreds. Also the sharpest point it makes is extremely pointy, which I love.

The best sharpener I have ever owned! Being able to set the length of the sharpened lead is very convenient, and has drastically cut down the number of pencil tips I was breaking. I also really like that the sharpener can be closed off with a little door, so fine shavings don't shake out into my pencil case.

Works beautifully. Had a little trouble with some cheapie pencils but I think that's due to the pencils' inferior quality. On my prismacolors, it sharpened beautifully with no waste. All the settings give a great range for different sharpness levels for different types of pencil work. Love it!
