This amazing pencil sharpener can be adjusted to 5 different sharpening angles with a simple turn of the dial! Set the dial to 1 or 2 for a sturdier, shorter tip that reduces breakage and is great for colored pencils. Or, set the dial to 3-5 for your hard lead graphite drawing pencils. Manufactured in Japan, the Kutsuwa STAD T'GAAL also features a "close" option that shutters the hole and keeps pencil shavings inside, reducing mess. Compact, portable, and utilitarian, this sharpener is any artist's dream.
