Sharpeners


This is a list of pencil sharpeners, sorted by angle. Most sharpeners for graphite pencils seem to sharpen the pencils with an angle of about 20°. Sharpeners for colour pencils usually sharpen the pencil with an angle of about 30°.

Further information can be found in this brochure by the ISZ.

The table is quite wide, so you might need to scroll horizontally to see all columns.
