This handsome double sharpener from KUM fits wide pencils and slim ones alike. The sharpener is made from noticeably heavy brass, which, like a firm handshake, has a nice heft that always makes a good impression.

Replacing a dull blade is simple with an eyeglasses (or similar) screwdriver and replacement blade commonly found at art supply stores.

Since 1919, German stationer KUM has manufactured sharpeners, drawing instruments, erasers, artist brushes and much more for schools, offices and cosmetics.
