What is it? The KUM Long Point Pencil Sharpener is just that…a pencil sharpener! What makes this sharpener unique is the ability to sharpen a pencil into a long, precise, and sharp tip with ease. Designed and made in Germany, this sharpener is high quality, portable, and easy to use and clean out.
Notes: I purchased two pencil sharpeners at the same time, this one and the Kutsuwa T’Gaal variable point (check out my review here!). This particular sharpener is a one trick pony, but it’s really good at that one trick. One hole shapes the wood and the other sharpens the lead to a precise writing point. I prefer to write with a very sharp pencil, so I do find myself reaching for this one quite often. The construction is as solid as I’d expect for $4.10 – no complaints here.
Overall, the sharpener does a great job at making and keeping my pencils sharp. The contained unit holds a decent amount of pencil shavings, making it ideal for tossing in a bag and using on the go. I also like that there are two spare blades included with the sharpener, extending the useful life of the product significantly.
