An extraordinary sharpener – hand-made in Germany.
The KUM Meisterwerk offers what artists and real pencil enthusiasts really need.
Sharpening takes place in two phases. In the first, only the wood of the pencil is removed. The sharpener setting is a TC system (Thin Cut). In phase two, the lead is sensitively sharpened and shaped. The goal is a long and precise pen tip. The result is a cone shape based on 8 degrees. A must have for this perfection is a pencil with a centered mine and first-class wood. Second and third quality pencils fail here.
The Masterpiece is packed in a plastic case and a neoprene pouch with two spare blades.
The sharpener is made of magnesium, a high-tech material. Magnesium is not only lightweight, but also ensures the perfect fit of the blade. The blades are made of finely ground high-carbon steel. This steel – with a hardness of more than 62 hrc – is much harder than any high quality kitchen knife (about 55 hrc).
Due to the Dynamic Torsion Action®, the blades are under constant tension, preventing the tip of the pencil from breaking.
