I’m thrilled to discover I am not the only personal who gets a little enthusiastic about quality tools. Ez from Creature Comforts waxed poetic about her love of the KUM pencil sharpener. I wholeheartedly agree that KUM makes THE BEST pencil sharpeners. The two-hole sharpener is great for both regular and colored pencils. A whole assortment of these sharpeners are available at your local art supply stores or online at Utrecht, or at Jet Pens. If you only use standard-sized pencils, I highly recommend the single-hole metal sharpener with spare blade.
