Declaration: The KUM Long Point Pencil Sharpener is the best on the market.
It has two #2-sized blades, marked 1 and 2. Run your Ticonderoga through hole number one first. This shaves away the wood. Run it through the second hole and it sharpens the lead to a fine point. Guess what? It’s German engineered. This particular model has an additional two sharpeners for 2mm and 3.2mm automatic pencil leads. Thank me later.
