This is a neat 2-piece, two-holed sharpener in a sturdy transparent plastic-type case, which often comes up as part of the 'Amazon Add-On Programme', offering even greater value for money.

COLOUR : GREY with WHITE sharpener unit.
RED & WHITE 'DERWENT' embossment on the front.

It measures roughly 5 cm x 2.5 cm x 2.75 cm with nicely rounded corners.
It has a flip-top lid with a finger notch, which opens to reveal the twin sharpener - two sizes for slim & larger pencils.
The whole top comes off when it is time to empty and clips easily back into place.
Because the top comes off it is easy also to free off a trapped, broken point if required.

On the go, it is small enough to slip into a briefcase but not lose sight of it. On a desk it is a nonchalant asset when my favourite pencil needs a point!

I have been using mine on and off for over 6 months now and it is still going strong without any noticeable change in the blade efficiency.
The shavings canister does fill up surprisingly quickly if a batch of pencils needs sharpening up but you can usually get just that little bit more in there when you have to!

It comes simply packed in a little cellophane packet.

Good little unit and works very well, only gripe is the lid is a little flimsy. The actual sharpener is easily removed to get those annoying bits of lead out that always get stuck. Overall pretty good.

My heart leapt with joy when this little pouch was on my doorstep. FINALLY! I thought, I can sharpen my pencils the way they deserve. Yep, its a bit cumbersome, but by golly it has a smooth blade. Opening the lid was so satisfying that a small gasp escaped my lips and I got down to business. My pencils have never looked back.

Its your average sharpener that pops out of the plastic enclosure. Blades on the sharpener aren't the greatest, it's eaten chunks out of my pencils. After a bit of careful angling and finding that 'sweet spot' it sharpens fine.

TLDR; Not the greatest but does the job

Yep, I love this. No mess!
What a great idea - I don't have to get up all the time to take pencil shavings to the bin.

This is a nice piece of equipment, glad I decided to buy it. I use it all the time to sharpen my art pencils.

Used constantly by grandchildren of all ages 2-13 and are happy they can sharpen their pencils so well. So good from my point of view, no shavings over the floor. It is lasting well as it is very robust and worth the mere pennies of the cost. Would recommend to anyone with children to keep happy!!!

It sharpens pencils and catches all the shavings. Not much more to say than that!

I love this sharpener, it cuts the pencils smoothly with little resistance. However I find sometimes to get a sharp point you do have to press the pencil down with some pressure but overall is a great accessory to have.
