A versatile 3-in-1 pencil sharpener
Reviewed in Australia on 2 July 2020
A great flexible sharpener with three different cutting profiles for different pencil and lead types.
See the photo for a comparison of the angle and length on different pencils; Staedtler Noris-Maxi (Jumbo), Staedtler Mars Lumochrom (Graphite), and Staedtler Aquarell (Colour).
The sharpener cuts smoothly with easy pencil rotation, resulting in a very pointy point if required. Has decent sized receptacles for the shavings while still fitting ergonomically in my large hand. Has a small interlocking lip to seal in any stray shavings when closed — presumably to minimise mess in a pencil case. Stainless steel blades made in Germany, secured with tri-wing screws. Decent quality plastics overall, although I’m not sure how the hinge will hold up over time.
Comes as is, and does not include any additional packaging or instructions. Overall a very good quality pencil sharpener for the price.
