Located in Erlangen, Germany, Bavaria’s famous pencil-producing region, KUM is the world’s premier manufacturer of handheld pencil sharpeners.
All sharpeners are equipped with ultra hard (65 hrc) and razor sharp high carbon steel blades. These blades are harder than ball bearings or any high quality knife. This is needed because pencil leads are made of a mixture of graphite and various types of clay, which are extremely hard.
Each blade is razor-sharp. A felt sharpening wheel (similar to leather) is used as the last step in the automatic sharpening process.
This classic double-hole brass wedge sharpener is solid, reliable and very heavy for it’s size. With both 8mm & 11mm holes, it is suitable for both regular and jumbo pencils.
Made in Germany.
