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.

KUM Handheld Sharpener
By Ranger Dan
Comments about Kum Long Point Pencil Sharpener:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
from Surrey, BC
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.

Brilliant, with one major issue...
from New York, NY
I've purchased 5 or 6 of these sharpeners through Blick now, and they all have the same issue, eventually, and break. Now, if the cradle portion of the sharpener (and by that I mean the part directly around and holding the blades) were metal, it would not keep breaking as it does. But, as it's plastic, it keeps cracking, sooner or later...and at this point, having gone through more than a few, it's just unacceptable. I can't keep throwing my money away, even though this is one of the best sharpeners I've ever used. I'd pay double for something made of all metal but sharpened like this...so it wouldn't break.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great Sharpener for Any Pencil!
from St. Louis, MO
I like to sketch with Prismacolor colored pencils and col-erase pencils. This sharpener is great at shaping the lead to a nice point without causing breakage. The first slot will remove the wood casing to expose the lead, while the second slot will gently sharpen the lead. The blades seem nice and are also replaceable. It has a cover to catch pencil shavings if you're on the go, but it fills up quickly and I would recommend emptying it out before storing it in a pencil case or a bag or you'll end up with shavings and bits of lead in your storage bag.
