A sharpener does what it should by sharpening pencils to a crisp point. The professional-quality blade is sturdy and long lasting and won't bite or dig into your pencil, while a secure lid collects shavings for mess-free sharpening. How to use: Insert the pencil into the sharpener and twist until the tip has a fine point. To clean, remove the clear lid and push down on the top of the blade cartridge. It will pop out of through the bottom of the casing. Remove makeup from the blade and pop it back into place.
