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.
i haven't bought the product but im planning on getting it,
reply to the last review : i cut my pencil's like this too, except with
scissors, there's nothing wrong with the way it is cut, i actually prefer
cutting my pencil's like that (:
but yeah. i does look like a potato peeler xD
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.
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.
