  Excellent sharpener...., October 14, 2011
By ejyeow
Excellent sharpener. After my Panasonic Auto-stop sharpener broke down, I was skeptical that I could find a sharpener that could match its quality. I'm glad I was proven wrong. I'm an artist who works mainly with colored pencils, mostly Prismacolor, and a high quality sharpener is EVERYTHING in this medium. I'm glad that this sharpener sharpens the pencils to a point thats sharp enough to color with, but not too sharp that it will break. I also like that the sharpener does not mangle the wood with its jaws and that it does not make too much of a grinding noise when sharpening. I will be buying this sharpener again if my current one breaks, which I hope it won't too soon :)

Fellow Artists: This is the best sharpener for all of your pencil needs!

  Most of the sharpeners..., September 20, 2011
By ssy...
Most of the sharpeners like the Dahle 166 sharpen well but feature teeth that mangle the finish of the pencil. I was looking for a sharpener that is well built and would keep my Mitsubishi Uni's looking good. The KH-20 is a superb sharpener. The push the red button on the crank to toggkle between a sharp or blunt point. The crank mechanism is sturdy and very smooth with no perciptable play, the jaws are made of rubber coated grips that work well with round or hexagonal pencils. The spring that pushes the jaw is much better and stronger than more expensive sharpeners.

For pencil affectionados I say dont hesitate this the best sharpener hands down.

  Just received this sharpener..., April 23, 2011
Just received this sharpener and it's great! Very light, mostly plastic except for the burr blades. No manual but none needed. As mentioned, push the orange button in for blunt and out for long point. Open the lever on front to push pencil in, then extent the movable front face to hold long pencils in place for sharpening.

The long point pencils this sharpener produce are fantastic, better than any manual hand sharpeners I've used. I don't much care for the blunt points it makes but I don't have that need either.

Very happy with sharpener. Highly recommend for artists too.

This sharpener produces very high quality points and has an auto stop feature that cuts to a minimum that amount of pencil being wasted. The clamping feature on the KH-20 features three rubber coated jaws that protect the finish that the manufacturer gave the pencil. The orange clicky button on the crank allow the user to select either sharp or blunt finishes to the point. Even the sharp finish creates a very strong point. It's a joy to use a pencil that has been sharpened by this outstanding device. Thanks JetPens!

A bit messy, but completely worth it; the mechanism is smooth and the resulting point is marvelous. I can see why the entire shipment JetPens stocked just a few weeks ago is already almost gone. :)

I owned 8 pencil sharpeners, ranging from manual to electric high-power sharpeners. Upon receiving the Uni KH-20, the others went straight to garbage heaven! Good riddance! Thanks JetPens!

A beautiful device: simple, safe and reliable.
I doubt it is even possible to get better sharpening quality from any other machine, no matter how much more expensive it would be.
