Have you ever noticed how colored pencils and softer pencils can break easily in a sharpener? This happens for a number of reasons (broken core, dull blade, we could go on...), but the truth is just that soft pencils are more fragile than a standard writing pencil and require a little more care when sharpening.
This sharpener by NJK was designed specifically for your more delicate soft pencils. With a super sharp blade at just the right angle, it's going to do a better job than your standard sharpener.
From Osaka, Najakima Jukyudo is family-owned and was founded in 1933 with the philosophy that pencil sharpeners should be “light as an apple peel, and sharp as a Samurai sword.”
Note: all NJK sharpeners are shipped loose, without plastic boxes.
