Wired’s “Pro Tip”: Alvin Brass Bullet Sharpener

Wired Pro-Tip article

In this month’s issue of Wired magazine, there is a brief little article about the Alvin Brass Bullet pencil sharpener ($6.17 from our local art supply store, Creative Coldsnow). This dandy little brass, knurled sharpener features the all-important KUM blade. Simple, classic and 100% effective. Glad to see even the tech geeks see the value in a classic manual tool.

  1. The Bullet sharpener is made by M+R Möbius + Ruppert. It has a special designed blade. The spare blades of KUM don’t work with this sharpener.
    M+R has it’s individual high Quality blades!
