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.

Best sharpener for Prismacolors!
from Beachwood, NJ
Comments about Prismacolor Pencil Sharpener:
With the first use of this sharpener, I knew it was exactly what I needed to get a perfect pencil point every time. I do a lot of sketching and coloring using Prismacolor pencils and with other sharpeners, the points wouldn't get sharp enough and would break easily. They would also sharpen crooked and splinter the wood. The Prismacolor sharpener has holes the exact size of Prismacolor pencils, so they don't wobble while sharpening and the blade provides a clean, smooth, perfect point.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best Sharpener ever!
from Pasco, WA
This sharpener is fantastic! The two holes allow for a shorter or longer point. It delivers a clean crisp point every time. Sharpens colored pencils as well as graphite. The cap keeps shavings from falling out during transport, but the lid does pop off occasionally, so I am storing it in a Baggie for longer treks.

Gives me the right sharpness for my card work. I have tried others but could not get the results I need for the detailed work. Fast shipping and definitely high quality product.
I found it! Finally done looking for a good sharpener
from Highland, Utah
I really am ecstatic about this sharpener, thanks! Even with my cheaper colored pencils it sharpens them just right for longer use, where the tip doesn't keep breaking off. love it!

BEST sharpener EVER!
After buying three sharpeners that basically chewed up my costly coloring pencils, I ordered the Prismacolor Sharpener and crossed my fingers. I am thrilled with the results!! There are two choices to sharpen, it is so comfortable in your hands, it collects the shavings, and the blades are unbelievably sharp! I have to laugh when I tell you this, I had to google how to empty the shavings! Now that I know how to do this, it's very simple. You hold the sharpener in one hand while pressing UP right below where the clear flip top opens. I was so thrilled with this order that I told my sister she had to get one, which she did, and she can't believe how well it works. This is a must have for anyone who is into adult coloring and does not want their costly pencils ruined!
from Fowler, CO
I followed the video tip to use my left hand to hold the pencils while turning the sharpener with my right hand. It works fantastically! So far none of the leads of my colored pencils have broken at all. The two holes in the sharpener are an added benefit, because they provide different points. I use the larger hole most often when coloring because I like to cover more area with each stroke of the pencil. I love this sharpener!
from Franklin, New York
I sat down right away and used the sharpener on all of my dull colored pencils without a single breakage of the leads. I am both surprised and happy.
Works great with my Prismacolors!

Though not the best sharpener out there this one works great with my Prismacolors. My favorite sharpener so far is the Alvin Triple Hole sharpner, but I only trust the Prismacolor brand sharpner for my colored pencils.

Large receptive is nice as is the choice of points.
Not what I had hoped for
from May town, Pa
On some of my colored pencils it works great however on white it's just horrid. There is no way to get this thing to sharpen them. It starts forming a point and then just snaps it off. Hard to explain exactly what's happening but my guess is that my white pencils are too soft a material. I use cheap 10/$1 sharpeners that work fabulous on all the pencils but I wanted something bigger to hold onto and had a place that catches the shavings. All in all it's pretty nice and maybe it's just me. I would recommend this someone looking for a nice sharpener.
