Welcome to dickblick
The Long Point Pencil Sharpener by Kum creates a perfect pencil point in two steps, first sharpening the wood casing and then precision-sharpening the graphite point.
Ideal for sharpening both standard pencils and draftsman's pencils, the sharpener features two 8 mm holes, two steel blades, an automatic brake that prevents oversharpening, and a translucent, hinged plastic lid that lets you see when the shavings receptacle is full. Two replacement blades are also included.

Comments about Kum Long Point Pencil Sharpener:
this is a really nice sharpener for colored pencils (prismas, polychromos, and luminance). You can tell when the blades dull, because it is extremely difficult to sharpen the polychromos. The only breakage was when the blades were really dull. It comes with two extra blades which is a plus. Do not sharpen pastel pencils with this sharpener! I use a razor blade and sandpaper for my pastel pencils. Overall, I would reccamend this sharpener, and I will stock up on blades since I use it a lot.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fine tuning the sharpening!
By Yachtie M
I got this sharpener upon recommendation of a teacher. I like that you can separately whittle down the wood before bringing to a point the led. One does not need to push the pencil in at all, simply turn with a gentle hand. The one down point of this sharpener is that it does it has a rather small container for the shavings and the lid doesn't leave enough room for the shavings to move away from the sharpening blade.
This sharpener was recommended by a friend, and I really like it. It has one hole to sharpen the wood, then another hole to sharpen the lead of the pencil. It does an excellent job on graphite, although I haven't tried it on my pastel pencils yet. Am very pleased with this little jewel.
Very good product

Best pencil sharpener I've had. My only complaint is that the receptacle for shavings is rather small... but it works so well that I can overlook that.

Sharpens to really fine point without making the casing overly fragile. Great for detail.
KUM Handheld Sharpener
By Ranger Dan
This sharpener solves all problems of hand held sharpeners. The two step sharpening process minimizes breakage and enables you to achieve a custom sharpened point to your satisfaction. The housing contains all shavings for easy disposal. It's compact size allows easy mobility for on-site work. I liked it so much I also purchased one for my aspiring artist step daughter.
Love the long points
from South Florida
I was happy with my other pencil sharpeners until trying the Kum Long Point Pencil Sharpener. It is the only sharpener I want to use. I just ordered a backup. The price at Dick Blick is excellent.

Works on Prismacolor which are notorious for breaking. Sharpened 150 Prismacolor pencils with no issues along with others in my collection. Best price here too.
Yeah, a Pencil Sharpener
By Lousy Laura
I got this as a backup to my Caran d'Ache Pencil Sharpening Machine. I love that thing, but it is heavy enough to anchor a cruise ship; what if I decide to range some distance from my abode? Well, this is a decent or better sharpener. It takess more effort and time than my helical grinder, but it does produce a wonderful point and seems far less desiring to break my leads than have similar hand held sharpeners I have used. For a sharpener in general it is better than okay; as a hand held it is excellent.
I would buy this product again.

Good clean point when using prismacolor pencils.
