Comments about Faber-Castell Grip Trio Sharpener:
I really like this product. It not only works extremely well but it actually keeps all the trash inside, which I have not seen in other sharpeners before.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Don't purchase for colored pencils
from Toledo, OH
I bought a few Caron d'Arch pencils to try them. The pencils are too fat to fit my electric pencil sharpener. I bought this Faber Castell pencil sharpener on recommendation by Bick's customer service because it has a larger hole but this flimsy pencil sharpener was not the answer. It makes a short fat point instead of a sharp thin point. Unusable for colored pencils! I will return the pencils and the sharpener.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with this sharpener. With colored pencils that have soft cores, a point that's too long will be delicate and prone to breaking. If you prefer a longer point, we have several options for colored pencils with firmer cores in the standard diameter that are ideal for sharpening to a long point. Our Product Information Team would like to work with you to recommend pencils and a sharpener that would be more to your liking. You can reach them weekdays 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!

The product sharpens great but when you close it the shavings fall into the center part.

I love my little sharpener!
By Wild Okie Fine Art
from Tulsa, OK
I have had mine for almost a year and use my sharpener for my Polychromos and graphite pencils. It fits perfectly both on my very messy desk as well as in a purse or bag when I go out to sketch. It sharpens pencils with ease and even was able to sharpen my few very breakable Prismacolors without breaking them. About to order me a second one to keep in my studio while I take my current one out with me.
from Blountsville, AL
Really sharp, fits my hand nicely.
Love this handy multi pencil sharpener. Being able to sharpen different sizes in one sharpener makes it very useful.
great little sharpener

Best I've tried
from Arvada, Colorado
After trying several types of sharpeners I have found the Fiber-Castell Sharpener to be the best for being easy on the pencil while still allowing me to get the point I'm after.
Another Ehh product from Faber Castell
By Wizard X
from Fontana, CA.
For first uses, it works great! But then the blades started dulling and breaking my Faber Castell graphite pencils. There is some light spilling from the containers, but that's not a problem. I probably received a faulty sharpener or something. Faber Castell makes great and high quality products but this sharpener needs some work. Try using a Kum Sharpener! :)
Merchant response: We're sorry that this sharpener didn't last well for you, and we're happy to work with you to rectify this. One of our Customer Care Agents will be in touch to see how we can help.
