I didn't know a thing like this existed. In my days of sharpening pencils, I would so often be frustrated by the pencil lead breaking before I could get it sharpened. This mostly happened with color pencils, and it would waste so much colored lead. This two-step sharpening is a total pleasure to use. First, you sharpen the wood down to the lead core; next, you use the second sharpener to sharpen just the lead. It's a gentler process, and allows for a smooth and precise point each time. A must-have tool for any pencil user, and a revelatory item for color pencil lovers everywhere.
The Blackwing Two-Step Long Point Sharpener creates a long point using a two-step sharpening process. The first hole sharpens the wood and the second hole precisely sharpens the graphite core.
Each sharpener features a matte rubberized finish for added grip and German steel sharpening blades. The sharpener can hold three fresh sharpens before needing to be emptied.
