The Kum Automatic Long...
The Kum Automatic Long Point Pencil Sharpener has to be one of the best small
portable sharpener I have so far used. Like the previous person said, I strongly
recommend this sharpener to anyone who uses wooden pencils.
Pros: Easy to use. Small and portable. Gives a great very pointy lead. Comes
with two replacement blades. Also has a sharpener for leadholders that use 2 mm
or 3 mm leads.
I mention this end bit because I was really pleased with it. I bought a Lamy
Scribble 3.15mm drafting pencil from here. And though I was really pleased with
the pencil. I had no way of sharpening it. I bought this sharpener a couple of
months before I bought the Scribble, and then I had no idea what a leadholder
was. I was incredibly pleased to discover that I could sharpen my pencil
graphite with this sharpener.
Cons: It fills up with lead shavings really quickly becaue it's so small. The
blades became pretty dull after +5 months of use, but that may be because I used
this alot and I had people asking me for this sharpener too. It would also
sometimes but rarely break the lead of my pencils when I was sharpening ithem.
All in all, this is a wonderful great sharpener. Easy to use and gives a great
point. But like I said, it fills will pencil shavings pretty quickly. And the
blades dulled somewhat quickly. I have now though found a solution. I only use
this sharpener when I am at University or not home. When I am home though, I use
my Classroom Friendly Supplies Pencil Sharpener that can be bought here. Note:
I'm not affiliated with them. I just really like their pencil sharpener:
Which I argue to some extent that it may sharpen a little better than this. But
since it's so big, I don't take it with me to classes haha.
Buy this Kum sharpener. You honestly won't regret it. I know I haven't.
