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.

Comments about Prismacolor Pencil Sharpener:
I LOVE this pencil sharpener!! I especially appreciate the choice of two point styles. Also high on my list of great features is its design-I happen to have nerve damage in my hands and this sharpener is large enough and shaped correctly to grasp securely without being so large as to make it clumsy. The lid is easy-open and the shavings are securely contained. The container is translucent so you can see how full of shavings it is without opening it. I would highly recommend this sharpener for anyone who works with colored pencils.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best Manual Sharpener That I have found
from Atlanta, Ga
I have found this Sharpener works best! Electric sharpeners eat your pencils up. And if you use a quality, expensive brand of color pencils, this is what you want to use. It accommodates both the standard size and the smaller size of verithin pencils.

Best sharpener for Prismacolors!
from Beachwood, NJ
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.
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.
from Oak Harbor, WA
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.
