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.

Works great with my Prismacolors!
from Fayetteville, AR
Comments about Prismacolor Pencil Sharpener:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
Cheaper manual sharpeners often broke the lead and sometimes even split the wood of the pencils. So far, this one is working much better.
I love the Prismacolor sharpener.I like the different size points you can have wide and thin.
I love this sharoener
This sharpener was really a life saver after I had tried to use other sharpeners on my prismacolor premier pencils. With this sharpener I haven't had any more problems with my pencils breaking. I'm really happy with the results!!

this sharpener works really great, I love it have two choices of points for the pencils. Great product
Makes two different points
I bought a whole assortment of different prismacolor pencils and bought this to sharpen them once they arrived. It does a pretty good job and I like that its easy to empty. The top stays on pretty well but I don't think I would put it in a bag without emptying it.I haven't been using it too long so I am not sure how well the blade will hold up but those are pretty easy to replace. The fact that I can sharpen my pencils with two different types of tips is a huge plus.All in all, its definitely not bad.

The best sharpener for manual sharpening.
from Glen Allen, Virginia
I have given one of these to a Great Niece. She is getting into colored pencil work.
Prismacolor Pencil Sharpener
from Kansas City, MO
It's the only brand of hand-held sharpeners I currently use in my class that are long lasting on the container and the blades. I have around 300 students out of the year and it will last the whole time. They are also less likely to be taken out of the room because a child is not interested in taking such a large sharpener (in comparison to other hand-held sharpeners).
