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.

The finest which I have seen.
from Winston-Salem, NC
This sharpener has a slot that will produce a point more closely akin to that of an old fashioned, wall-mounted pencil sharpener, which is more desirable than the other pencil sharpeners that give you a point like those found on the score-card pencils at most, if not all golf courses!
ok if it is for kids
for professional it doesn't compare to the bullet shape Prismacolor sharpener it is okay for graphite but not for colored pencils
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Once I figured out how to empty it...
from Troy WV
I don't know why they put that black sliding cover on, as it works just fine without it and you can dump it anytime if you leave the stupid sliding cover off! Sharpens very well and I like the idea that the shavings are contained and don't end up all over the place.

This sharpener is good and pretty well ergonomically designedMy first experience with this pencil sharpener was having it fall apart. As far as sharpeners go, it was a little above the others. I don't have a problem with points on the pencils breaking when I sharpen them. The trick I have found that the secret to keeping them from breaking down is not to sharpen aggressively. When using the pencils, I layer in the colors rather than putting pressure on them. Blick's was able to deliver the sharpener and my pencils in three or four days&. I will definitely order from them in he future
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.
