If you like your wooden pencil sharpened just right, sometimes you need to take matters into your own hands. Softer pencil lead grades often need a broader point while harder pencil lead grades need a sharper, longer point. A standard pencil sharpener can miss these subtleties and create a lot of waste. Previously, one would have to use a blade or knife to sharpen a wooden pencil to just the right length for ideal writing performance. This Sun-Star Safety Pencil Knife makes the experience much more comfortable and safe with its convenient plastic grip and blade shield. Those who have steady hands who sharpen their pencils this way will love it.

December 11, 2010
Sharpens like a knife but without needing quite as steady hands.
I've seen many artists who will only sharpen like this or with a knife.

Not sure why anyone would give 1 star since it does what it says it will do.

I was excited to see this knife. l like to use Prismacolor pencils & a blade works better than a sharpener on them. Unhappily I did have to give a middling review score. There was no mention that I saw which indicated it could not be used by a left-handed person. It might be nice to add that info to the product description. Looks like a great tool. Too bad I can't use it.

This is an excellent artist pencil knife. It’s a lot safer then using an xacto knife and cheaper then some of the knives you would buy at an artist supply shop.

I know a few artists who recommend using a blade/razor to trim their pencils to point. This seemed like a good, safe starting point to try it. Only problem is, the cutting edge of the blade is angled slightly upwards, so even with a lot of elbow grease, you can't get a sharp point to your pencil.
