The long point pencil and lead sharpener is simply a must-have for all sketchers and pencil artists alike!

This truly versatile sharpener allows you to first shape the wood, and then second shape the lead using the two separate sharpening functions. Also includes a lead pointer for 2mm and 3.15mm leads as well as an automatic stop installed to prevent over sharpening and protect the pencil. All this, and it still comes complete with two spare blades!

Get the best from your pencils with this stylish and high performing sharpener!
  1. Great sharpener with reservation Review by Ann
    Rating

    I think this is a brilliant sharpener - my only reservation is as commented before the long point is liable to break off very easily... I have been using it with Derwent Ink intense pencils - its great. (Posted on 12/07/2015)

  2. Long Point Pencil & Lead Sharpener Review by Robin James Willett
    Rating

    Since I bought one of these several years ago I never sharpen pencils with anything else now. They are well made and the blades take many sharpenings.

    The long point sharpens very fine and the long taper along the wood allows for shading with the side of the pencil.

    When doing very fine pencil work it is so easy to keep the point needle sharp. (Posted on 14/08/2013)

  4. Only 70% successful Review by Elfreda Cormode
    Rating

    This sharpener works fine for the conventional point but it sharpens the long point like a corkscrew which means it breaks very easily. Of course this might just be a faulty one. Sorry to say I\'m disappointed with this item.

  5. Seems OK Review by Leslie Line
    Rating

    Good design and handy to use. I need to use it for a longer time before I can say that the blades remain sharp. The two spare blades supplied are an added bonus. (Posted on 08/04/2013)

    Excellent for sharpening Derwent pastel pencils. The final sharp point has to be achieved with a scalpel or sandpaper (Posted on 28/03/2013)

    I really like the way the sharpener first shapes the wood and the second sharpener brings the pencil to a nice fine point. I wish I\'d bought one sooner. (Posted on 19/10/2012)

  16. These are excellent sharpeners. Review by Peggy Randall
    Rating

    These sharpeners allow you to sharpen a pencil without breaking the lead as you sharpen the wooden case first and then the lead. I have several myself and keep TSAD\'s bins equipped with them. (Posted on 28/09/2012)

    The pencil sharpener that I have just received from the SAA is extremely efficient and better than any other pencil sharpener I have used before. (Posted on 21/09/2012)

  18. Best sharpener I have ever used Review by Terri Graham
    Rating

    Very easy to use and works pefectly. The stopping edge makes it difficult to break the lead which is the problem with most other sharpeners. (Posted on 20/09/2012)

  21. Long lead Pencil sharpener. A great tool for a slender point on soft lead wooden pencils Review by Peter Clarke
    Rating

    Sharpening 3b 4b 5b pencils can be difficult, I find this the sharpener exceptionally good. By having a sharpening position (1) which first removes the wood only,leaving a length of parallel lead to be sharpened to a very fine point using the number 2 sharpening hole. It beats my wood chisel to fits. (Posted on 19/09/2012)

  22. super sharpner Review by Peter Lavine
    Rating

    Wow, what a super sharpner this is. Reasonable price and having two degrees of sharpness is a definate boon. To be honest using the sharpest point has actually improved my drawing, I didn\'t think it would make that much difference but it does. would recommend this to anyone (Posted on 19/09/2012)

    Rating

    The SHARPENER was not all that successful. I thought it would sharpen my pastel pencils but I think it was not really meant for that. (Posted on 18/09/2012)
