Faber Castell 3 hole sharpener £3.20 Out of stock. Usually when people have problems sharpening pencils, it is because they have a rubbish cheap sharpener .. this is a false economy with expensive artists pencils - honest - it is So treat yourself to a good one. I have had my one of theses for years and it works beautifully with every pencil I put in it - and collects the sharpenings. All for less than a large latte!! Go on - indulge your artist self !!
