New pencil sharpener

KUM two-step

That didn’t take long. Pictured is my new KUM pencil sharpener. The transparent lid lifts up to empty shavings. It’s a two-cylinder sharpener: one on the left and one on the right. The left one sharpens the wood and leaves the lead alone—the pencil stops and sharpening ends when the wood is sharp. The right one sharpens the lead—again, the pencil stops and sharpening ends when the lead is sharp. No oversharpening.

It results in a needle point, very nice indeed. A nice pause for one to collect one’s thoughts before resuming…

You can readily buy replacement blades when the original blades become dull.
