Ok but not that great
August 12, 2019
This is my experience using this gadget ford colored pencils.
Bought it because it is portable and takes 2 AA batteries and USB. However, the auto stop is not there. The instruction in Chinese says that this isn’t for pastel and waxed based pencils due to blockage issue. Well, several of my waxed based color pencils broke using this. Now they are shorter than the rest of my pencils. The issue could be the pencil wood quality. I had to gauge when to stop before the the tip or core breaks. There’s definitely a learning curve using this sharpener. BTW, don’t risk getting the tip very sharp. If you push it, the tip would break or the core would break.
BTW, this doesn’t work for Faber Castell Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils and its larger size Magnum pencils. They are too thick for this sharpener.
