Great pencil sharpener. With the two step sharpening you never have to worry about almost being sharp and then breaking the lead off and having to start over. Also it has a place to sharpen the larger diameter mechanical pencil leads and it comes with extra blades for the sharpener.

The only negative is that I wish it could hold more shavings. Sharpening a pencil once can fill up the holding compartment completely, making it hard to see how the sharpening is coming along.

I am learning to draw using graphite and this is the sharpener I have settled on after using and throwing away half a dozen others.The cheap school sharpeners that produce short, stubby points are useless for drawing pencils. The Kum produces the long taper and sharp point necessary for both broad strokes and fine detailing. It has two sharpening holes. The left one makes a long taper in the wood and leaves a blunt lead stopped at exactly the right length. The second one sharpens the lead to a fine point and makes the lead flush with the wood. After a few practice runs, I was able to produce perfect points every time. The sharpener comes with 2 extra blades, which I haven't used yet because it's easy enough to hone the existing cutters on a stone when necessary. The Kum also has two holes in the side to sharpen 2mm and 3.15mm leads from clutch pencils. I like this sharpener so much I bought a second one. By the way, I haven't found a sharpener that works on soft charcoal drawing pencils. I still end up using a single edge razor blade for these.

I encountered this pencil sharpener as a related product to a joke, and saw the great reviews. I added it to my wish list just to see what the big deal was. I did end up getting it for my birthday this year.

Several weeks later I find myself reaching for it almost daily. A few quick turns touches up my pencil for the day's notes. The point width my electric sharpener gave me has become the new standard for "fully dull". This sharpener sits on my desk at home and goes in my bag when I leave. I still let the electric sharpener start a new pencil, but I've done that with the Kum too and it only takes a minute.

I'm not an artist or engineer, just someone who finds pencil better for writing on paper than pen, but now I too know the brand name of my pencil sharpener.

I, like many others, have spent most of my life looking for a pencil sharpener that will actually sharpen pencils to a clean point without ripping off half the pencil in the process. Amazingly, it's this little $5.00 hand sharpener that actually does the job—not one of the fancy, expensive electric or wall crank models. I have yet to have this sharpener break my pencil point, which is something I can't say for any other sharpener, and I get a beautiful point every time. And on top of all this, you get two extra blades—an unusual (and very nice) gesture in today's world when the usual attitude from manufacturers is "buy a new one after our cheap product stops working."

Two minor issues:
* I'm pretty particular about having my pencil points really sharp, and I often use soft lead (2B or even 4B), so I have to sharpen my pencil at least once during a typical page of writing. There is basically no receptacle for shavings: you can really only sharpen a typical pencil about five times before it fills up. If you don't have a trash can near you when you write, you may need to get something to empty the sharpener into, or find another sharpener to use in such situations.
* On my last one (I'm on my second now after giving the first one away), the sharpening assembly popped up about a millimeter, which made the holes too high for the outside guide, causing pencils to get stuck and the paint near the edge to get chewed up. After I figured out what was going on and pushed down firmly on the blades to pop it back into place, it worked perfectly again. Just something to keep in mind in case it happens.

Neither of these in any way take away from how nice it is to have a pencil sharpener that actually works for once. And for about $5.00, it's pretty hard to go wrong.

I've been looking for a good sharpener for a while. I homeschool my kids and draw with graphite and colored pencils, so that means lots of sharpening, and I really can't stand the noise of electric sharpeners. I liked my Staedtler tub sharpener for a little while, but the blades aren't replaceable, and it never worked very well with my Prismacolor pencils. In fact, I gave up and started using my pocketknife to sharpen them. As soon as the Kum arrived, I sharpened about a dozen of my colored pencils and only broke one lead (mainly because my 4 year old distracted me). Yay, no more ugly chopped-up looking pencils! And no more worries that I will cut my clumsy self with my pocketknife. I also sharpened a couple of graphite pencils and tried out the lead pointer. All sharpened beautifully. It does need to be emptied frequently, but since I was already accustomed to sharpening over the trash can, that doesn't bother me. So far, so good. If it disappoints, I will update this review.

***Edit: Dropped this from 5 stars to 3 stars because when I went to change the blades, the plastic threads stripped out. My husband was able to fix it for me by grinding the blade so the screw would reach the lower threads, but the plastic is a bad design.

Oh, and the plastic cover has broken off.
