The Kum 218T is a specialty pencil sharpener that has two (2) holes to produce either a pointed tip and a rounded tip. Can be used with black graphite pencils or colored pencils. Ideal for drawing art that requires both sharp lines and subtle shading.
Designed for 8mm diameter pencils. The sharpener is fitted with a container to store waste shavings.
Made by Kum of Germany, the world’s leading manufacturer of pencil sharpeners.
Kum sharpener blades 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. Each blade is razor-sharp, significantly sharper than stainless steel blades.
Kum sharpeners are unique in employing a curved blade. The blade is held flat by a screw like a spring. Due to the curved knife, the knife edges are under constant tension and are not lifted by the pressure during sharpening. This prevents the pen tip from “springing out” or tearing. In addition, the pressure against the screw prevents it from loosening.
