Hoe do I use the two step sharpener?
The Two Step Sharpener creates a long, straight point using a two step process. To create your point, insert the pencil into the hole labeled “1” and turn clockwise until the pencil spins freely. Then, insert the pencil into the hole labeled “2” and turn clockwise until the blade bites the wood.
Do you offer replacement blades?
Yes! The Two Step Sharpener comes with two replacement blades in the shaving compartment.
My lead keeps breaking. What gives?
Broken lead is usually caused by one of two things: off-centered graphite or dull sharpener blades. If you’re using a Blackwing, it’s likely the latter. Try replacing your sharpener blades and see if that fixes the issue. If your sharpener is brand new and not sharpening properly, try adjusting the screw tightness. A blade that is too tight or too loose may not sharpen precisely.
