Pencil Sharpeners

This collection of pencil sharpeners for artists will provide you with long lasting, reliable and highly effective sharpeners that you can use day in, day out. For anyone who sketches with pencils, the sharpener is perhaps the unsung hero of the operation. But when you misplace a sharpener or you have one that is ineffective, you realise how much of the operation relies on this workhorse of the artist's toolbox! This range of options have all been selected because we know they won't let you down.

The Perfect Sharp Point

Whether it is for graphite or for coloured pencils, being able to get a sharp point is crucial if you are going to achieve some precision in your drawings, sketching and any other pencil-work that you might enjoy doing. These artists pencil sharpeners in this range come in different styles, but they will be reliable when it comes to the crucial business of getting that point sharp. We are particularly fans of the metal sharpeners which have a good weight and grip to them in your hand. You just know from the sturdy feel of them that they will be your trusty companions for many years to come!

Mechanical Pencil Sharpeners

The main difference between your normal pencil sharpener and your mechanical sharpener is that with the mechanical version, the pencil stays in place and the sharpening mechanism is rotated using a manual lever. Instead of a stationary blade, the sharpener in this case actually uses a helical device which rotates and the sharpens your pencil end down to a fine point. These compact systems can be placed on the desk in your studio or some can be popped in your bag when you are sketching out and about; some of them even make things easier with clamps not only to fasten the pencil but also to secure the sharpener to the table.

Battery Operated Pencil Sharpeners

We also have some battery powered sharpeners which have the benefit of getting that end sharp with speed. The high quality durable blades and the propulsive battery powered system is made to save you time and energy each time you need to sharpen a pencil. Simply pop the pencil in, apply a second or two of pressure, and then you will be ready to get back to being creative!
