Recomendable al 100, aunque no creo que resista una caída de un lugar medianamente alto.
As someone who's never used one of these before myself, I find a lack of even basic instruction included with the product a bit discouraging. The fact that the sharpener itself is designed in such a way that we should HAVE to look up instructions on how to use it should have necessitated some instruction, minimum, though none is included. I feel like a more intuitive design should have easily been possible.
That aside, after watching a youtube video all of 13 seconds long, I understand its use and can get an excellent point far better than that of the typical included sharpener. I do however find that despite being able to use it correctly, it still snaps lead frequently if certain adverse pressure is accidentally applied, or if you press the graphite too far down into the bucket.
All said, while the points provided by this sharpener are excellent, the sharpener isn't universal (other branded pencils may not fit), is not intuitive (typical included sharpeners or even a sanding block don't require extra education to use), and graphite can easily break with this design making it fairly easy to waste graphite for what might be accidental pressure. If you can use this easily, it will be an outstanding sharpener for you. However I would rather spend my time working on practicing art, than practicing sharpening, and will try other options to find one that suits me better.
