As good as a hand crank sharpener can get. None of them give a real needle point like the best of electrical sharpeners, but for writing purposes the point Uni KH-20 gives is fantastic, even for drawing if you don´t require a perfect needle point. It´s nice that a pencil comes out of this unharmed, and the mechanism is durable, doesn´t stop doing its thing after some months like the cheapos. Doesn´t come with a table clamp!!! Needs one. Has a hole for it.

I have bought these as gifts and the feedback has been positive. One receiver said: The best eraser I´ve ever used, it leaves no trace of graphite.
Beautiful like no other eraser. I´d use these if it wasn´t for the perfect shape and size of Boxy.

I expected a flimsy thing but this ruler is actually very sturdy and functional. Bought it as a gift to a 10 year old who couldn´t fit in her pencil case a ruler long enough to draw margins in her notebooks at school. Works well, in almost daily use for months now.

I bought this as a gift to a 10 year old to be used instead of an ever unsharpened wooden pencil so that 1) her writing would be less messy 2) she would erase her errors. Both have happened, and the pencil is in daily use. The grip is comfortable, the eraser is LONG and the mechanism takes a lot of abuse without a whinge. Good thing that eraser refills are so easily available, too. Good price. The pencil feels a bit flimsy to an adult´s hand.

Good blackness (as black as Faber-Castell 5B or Mars Carbon 4B), doesn´t wear down as guickly as Mars Carbon, has all the attributes of a good lead. Buy the whole range.

Smart looking, durable, lightweight, non-slippery to hold, non-intrusive clip (no need to remove it), black, thick enough, slim enough, perfect, perfect, perfect.

I got used to these leads and then went for Mars for a change. Yes it was smooth but why did it wear down all slanted like that, why did it make crumbs? When you use a really excellent product you might not notice why it´s so good because you concentrate on your work not your tool, but the difference becomes clear when you try something else. When you get to Ain Stein, stop trying something else. It´s like with PG1000, or Boxy, or Tombow Mono 100, or Caran d´Ache Fixpencil, or Uni 2mm lead: don´t go any further, you´re already there. It´s time to stop buying different tools and to start actually doing something with what you have.

After using these a while longer I noticed that they break easily. Go for Uni! Quality is everything.

Very convenient and practical. Small enough to survive in the pencil case of the hard core minimalist. The point this sharpener gives is OK, not a long tapered needle that you make with a scalpel. Mars rotating sharpener makes a longer point for drawing but this is better for on-the-go use because of the lid and the size. Definitely better than any cap sharpener!

The only eraser I use. Mars, Rotring, Caran d´Ache, Tombow are all good but this one is perfect. The "will melt plastic" thing is funny, only after reading about it here did I understand why there are strange gray plastic crumbs "glued" onto my plastic rulers. Is this merely a Boxy thing or do other erasers do it as well?? Still 5 stars. The erasing power, the SHAPE!
