We have been searching a long time for a really good pencil sharpener, and the German made M&R range is superb. No bells and whistles, just good engineering. Made from solid brass, with replaceable blades, these sharpeners will last a lifetime...unless someone 'borrows' it from your pencil case!
We also stock Kum sharpeners, which are still excellent quality, but slightly more economical, plus the Kum Long Point Sharpener which sharpens pencils to an extra-long point in two stages. One hole is used to shape the wood, the second shapes the lead. An automatic brake prevents oversharpening. Flip-top case has a small waste container and two spare blades.
