For heavy-duty sharpening, this hand-crank sharpener has the biggest shavings reservoir we've seen. It can accomodate pencils of most sizes and does an elegant medium-length, slightly concave point. Included is a clamp, so you can attach it to a table (or if you're frequent pencil users like us, your kitchen counter).
Möbius + Ruppert is a family-owned businesses that's been making sharpener in Germany since 1922. They're known these days for their hefty brass models, with reliable, replaceable blades.
