Best sharpener EVER
I am a math person and this sharpener produces a point like no other. I keep one at home, one in my office and have a spare in my purse!

Who writes with pencils? Me!
This sharpener is excellent. There are two holes for a reason. Hole 1 will sharpen the wooden part of the pencil. Once that is done hole 2 will sharpen the lead (graphite). Yes, it is plastic, so be gentle with the lid.

Perfect Pencil Points every time
There are pencil sharpeners ... and then there are pencil sharpeners. Some people go for the quick, drop it in the electric sharpeners and that's okay ... I prefer to develop the perfect point. The ones that provide the crisp lines that glide gently over the page.
This dual system of shaving down the wood on one side and then sharpening it to the perfect point on the other, allows me to do just that. Partner it with the Palomino Blackwing pencil for the perfect writing experience.

To make a point
It is the search for the perfect sharpener that prompted this purchase. I am reluctant to give hard plastic cases five stars because they can get brittle. crack. check or the plastic hinge system break. But the case is nicely finished, textured, the seams are smoothed, etc. The two step system is inspired. and the pencil points seem strong and sharp. I am using it with only high quality graphite pencils not colored pencils, I cannot say the softer leads will hold the great point this sharpener makes.

Getting the point
This is not your grade school sharpener. It has the feel and function of quality.

I just bought 5 more
This is the best pencil sharpener ever. I just bought 5 more--one for the office, three as Christmas presents (along with 3 Blackwing pencils each), and one because I know I will find somebody who needs this and will appreciate it.

Works very well
I have never used a pencil sharpener that worked as well as this one. I am, however, very careful with the cover. It does not feel extremely sturdy.

Produces a Really Sharp Point
I bought this for use with the Blackwing Firm Pencils, It is fantastic for producing a sharp point. I have tried other lead pencils on it and it works beautifully on them too.

I love how this sharpener sharpens the wood and then the point, creating a long, sharp point. I have used this on Rhodia's pencils and it works great. I am planning to get some Palominos in the future!
