Customer Reviews

Very well German made product.

I really hate sharpening a pencil just to have the lead break off, sometimes quite far down.
R. Moody
Carefully sharpening in Hole No. 2 will now give you a nice, long, and very sharp point!

This review started out short, but after numerous updates is now incredibly lengthy. For those of you who don't want to read that much about a pencil sharpener, here is an abridged version: This pencil sharpener is very good when it works, but I have experienced inconsistency in the multiple instances I have purchased. Some work great, while others don't work at all. For more details, see below. My most recently purchased one DOES work, so I would recommend buying one, but if you experience problems right out of the box, don't spend too much time messing with it and just return it. I am less dependent on the sharpener now as I have moved to 2mm mechanical pencils (which work pretty well), but it's still nice to have a good sharpener on hand for shading pencils, and when this one works, it's by far the best I have ever used.

UPDATE: 1-27-2014
My recent update below detailed how this pencil sharpener used to work great for me, but the last 6 I have bought (all from Amazon) were faulty. After I wrote that update, I placed an order with Dick Blick art supply, and decided to throw in one more Kum Long Point sharpener with the order. Upon receiving this sharpener, which was boxed exactly the same as the ones from Amazon, and had the same "Made in Germany" stamping on the blades as the two I most recently purchased from Amazon (which didn't work, as detailed below), I tested it out on several pencils and it worked PERFECTLY. It was the same old Kum Long Point that I bought originally and loved.

I don't know why, but the 3 sharpeners I've bought from Dick Blick worked perfectly (they now stock replacement blades, too, something I couldn't find in the past), while the 6 I bought from Amazon didn't work at all.

Many of us when first learning how to draw were taught to sharpen our pencils using a utility knife in order to get a nice point and a long exposed length of graphite. If you're like me, many of your precious pencils got very short very quickly while attempting this. :( The Kum sharpener is perfect for this. It allows you to get about half an inch of exposed graphite painlessly. It has replaceable blades that can be hard to find. I found mine on pencils(dot)com. Also note that each sharpener comes with one set of replacement blades. I must say, however, that Amazon's price is about 2x or even 3x too expensive. You can find this sharpener for 1/3 the price at Blick (comes out to about 1/2 the price once you add on S/H). I own three of these: one for my desk, one for my bag, and one just in case. I've only used them on graphite and charcoal pencils. I'm not sure how they do with colored pencils, but I'd be hesitant to stick my Prismacolors in it since the color core is softer than graphite and might be more prone to break if that much were exposed at once.

Who would have thought I'd be writing a review of a pencil sharpener. But, when the electrical pencil sharpeners at work were chewing up my pencils, I thought I'd try an old fashioned one to see if the pencils fared better.

The KUM Long Point Pencil Sharpener is not an old fashioned device. First, there are two sharpening stations. The sharpener labeled #1 takes off much of the wood around the lead and gives the pencil end a nice conical shape. Sharpener #2 then refines the cone and adds a super sharp point to the lead.

It works like a charm and I have not ruined any more pencils by using an inferior sharpener.

The price may seem high, but the sharpener really does its work well.

To keep my colored pencils sharp, I have tried dozens of sharpeners, from the pricey electric and battery powered to the cheapest and simplest handheld ones that range from $7 to 50¢. This one is the best I have found so far. I won't go into the mechanics of it, as the other reviews do that in detail, except to reiterate that sharpening with the KUM is a two step process that cannot be condensed down to one step. The first step cuts away the wood and the second sharpens the graphite or wax or whatever material the lead is made from.

When I tested the KUM with colored pencils, I used every kind I had except my Derwents as they are larger than the average pencil and would be a bit too big to fit the one-size hole. However, despite a cartoon that seemed to indicate that only hexagonal pencils were appropriate for use in the sharpener, I tried my round Prismacolor Premier, my Prismacolor Verithin, Caran D'ache Pablo, Derwent Studio thin, and my round Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. What a delight to find that each and every pencil sharpened perfectly in the KUM sharpener, when I followed the 2-step process.

THe points are extremely long and razor sharp, though because of this they are of course delicate and need to be handled with care. You cannot expect to press down hard on them without having them break. I will say, though, that not a single pencil broke inside the sharpener when I did my testing. In addition, when I attempted to mend a pencil with a known broken core, by "nuking" it in the microwave for 20 seconds, then using the KUM sharpener, the process actually worked the first time I did it. It was nice to know I could save a pencil I thought I had lost...
