This sharpener is designed by German stationery specialists KUM especially for Palomino pencils. They come with two holes, one for sharpenening the wood and the other for sharpening the lead. This produces a super-sharp long point. There is an automatic brake to prevent oversharpening and the high carbon steel blades are razor-sharp.
- German-designed superb sharpener
- Choice of two colours
- Custom-designed for Palomino pencils
- Two spare blades included
What we like about this product:
- A beautifully designed product
- About the brand
These American-made pencils are considered to be one of the finest ever made and have something of a cult following. Discontinued in 1998, they soon became hot property on eBay with single pencils selling for $40 each. Brought back from extinction after petitions and protests in 2011, these are still made from the same Californian incense cedar with the finest Japanese-crafted graphite core. They are a dream to write with - Half the pressure, twice the speed - is their motto. The eraser tip is flat-ended for accuracy and there are three versions which differ in firmness with the standard Blackwing the softest, the Pearl medium and the 602 the firmest.
These pencils have a proud heritage and famous users include John Steinbeck, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein and Chuck Jones, who created Bugs Bunny with his Palamino.
