Welcome to dickblick
One sharpener, two uses! The Prismacolor Pencil Sharpener features two blades for narrow and wide point sharpening. This sharpener works great with Prismacolor colored pencils, graphite, and Prismacolor Verithin pencils. Made in Germany, the blades sharpen pencils to a precise point.
A sliding cover keeps shavings from spilling and a transparent housing lets you see when the shavings receptacle needs to be emptied. The sharpener’s small design also makes it great for tucking into a bag or backpack.

Prismacolor Pencil Sharpener
This is my favorite pencil sharpeners. It puts a good point on the pencils.
Good to have, easy clean-up, but uneven sharpening.
from Wilmington, NC
Love the pencil set purchased at the same time. When I first started using the sharpener, it did a great job, but after coloring 3 pictures, when I sharpened the pencils to a moderate tip, they would come out of the sharpener uneven and would often break at the wood line, causing loss of the tip and resharpening. Maybe got a defective one? Would love to try another.

Horrible sharpener. It breaks the tip and grinds up the wood of every pencil I try to sharpen. The little metal one works perfectly so I know it's not my pencils. I have a hard time holding onto the little one which is why I bought this one but I must have gotten a lemon.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great for Colored Pencils
from Minneapolis, Minnesota
These work very well for Elementary and Middle School students. The one negative, the covers need to be put back on a certain direction, which younger students don't realize, then they jam the covers in. Otherwise, a very strong product!
from jacksonville florida
easy to use, sharpens beautifully
I've used a lot of sharpeners and haven't been happy with any of them. This one is a metal sharpener encased in a roundish plastic case, curved angle from top to bottom with an extra section of plastic for easy grip. It has 2 holes for long tip or short tip. The compartment is well secured and doesn't pop apart when you don't want it to! When you want to empty the cylinder there is a groove that you push forward with your thumb to discard the shavings. It sharpens to a fine tip without a lot of waste! Great purchase!
I would buy this product again.
from Helena, MT
Seems to sharpen okay. Is hard to open and get the shavings out.
Very nice, works well
I haven't bought any sharpeners besides the cheap brand, so I don't know how this compares with others. But I love it and it works very well
I would buy this product again
from Prior Lake, MN.
Love it and I can save the shavings for other projects!
