Swordfish 'Ikon' Pencil Sharpener by Snopake Brands
Swordfish 'Ikon' Desktop Manual Pencil Sharpener 8mm - Product Code: 40100

The Swordfish Ikon Mechanical Sharpener is suitable for most types of 8mm pencils and gives excellent results with graphite, crayon, watercolour and pastel pencils. This manually operated sharpener and will sharpen a pencil to a 20 degree point and takes only 15 revolutions to sharpen to a pinpoint. A durable precision tool, the Swordfish Ikon pencil sharpener has a smart, timeless look, but inside it has a modern helical blade that produces an excellent pencil point with minimal effort. Its compact dimensions make it perfect for the space conscious, yet its high capacity shavings tray is capable of holding the shavings resulting from bringing fifteen brand new, square-cut, pencils to a sharp point. This combination of small size and high capacity make it ideal wherever space is at a premium, whether it be in the home, office, school or college.

One hand, easy operation

The Swordfish Ikon Mechanical Sharpener has an extendable front plate that holds the pencil securely. This front plate will slowly draw the pencil into the sharpener as the handle is turned. Sharpening will stop when the perfect 20º point has been achieved – there is no danger that your pencils will be wasted through over-sharpening. The Ikon comes complete with a desk clamp for added stability. The desk clamp is particularly useful in a classroom or workshop environment as it ensures the sharpener is kept safely and securely in one place and can be operated with one hand.

Change the blade, not the sharpener

As with all sharpeners the helical blade will, over time, become blunt. But you won’t need to change the sharpener as replacement blades are available, ensuring many years of use - Swordfish product ref: 40908. Replacing the blade mechanism is simplicity itself and only takes a few moments.

2-year warranty

The Swordfish 'Ikon' Pencil Sharpener also comes with a manufacturers 2-Year Product Warranty for total peace of mind – full details are included with the Sharpener.

    This was exactly what I have been looking for - a pencil sharpener that you put your pencil into, let go, and turn the handle - it shaves the pencil until it gets to a perfect point, then stops shaving (even if you carry on turning the handle, so the kids can play with it as much as they like). It is just like the sharpener my teacher used to have clamped to her desk in the 80s. Not like a lot of auto sharpeners these days which are just normal sharpeners mounted on a motor.

    I can't gush about this more highly! If you've got a box full of broken pencils they will all be sorted in half an hour, and you'll be scouring the house for more that you can fix.

    This beats all sharpeners: even electric ones! Easy to use, does not destroy tips and easy for kids.

    I bought this sharpener for my class of 7 and 8 year olds and it has been brilliant. We have been using it for over a year and it has continued to deliver beautifully sharp pencil points. It occasionally gets a lead stuck in it, but as it is easily dismantled a quick poke around with the tip of another pencil soon solves the problem. There is one major drawback, however, and that relates to the bench bracket; it simply isn't up to the task of securing the sharpener to a bench or table. I solved this by making a wooden holder which the sharpener slots into, but going to that length to make a purchase useable shouldn't be necessary. I would suggest that the bracket is perfectly adequate for home use by one or two children, but for regular use by 25+ children it is an unfortunate weak point in what is an otherwise excellent little device.

    Don't bother with those little cheapy plastic pencils sharpners, they only last a few pencils then you have top chuck 'em because they're blunt already! This is the one to get peeps! Only one thing to be aware of is that you must get carried away with turning the handle as your pencil will disappear really quickly into the shavings bucket! one turn and that should be it! Fantastic sharp, points.

    I've just clamped my sharpener to the desk and sharpened 22 pencils in 60 seconds.
    How much fun can you have on a Monday morning!
    It even stops grinding when the pencil is sharp.
    Get one. Brighten your day.

    What a great gadget, simple, but the points I get on my pencils for my artwork are brilliant.

    I use the Swordfish for my coloured pencil art because I need very sharp points on my pencils. This is a very good pencil sharpener with a spiral cutter which creates long and needle sharp points. Importantly it does not stress the pencil while sharpening. The capacious compartment for shavings is easily removed and is big enough to allow you to sharpen a lot of pencils before it needs to be emptied. It's slightly awkward to use until you get used to it and then it becomes second nature. It even sharpens very small stubby pencils really easily.

    Spiral cutters are by far the best method for sharpening pencils. The trick is to find one with an assembly around it that works well! This one does.

    [UPDATE: Just ordered a second one as I'm smitten with this sharpener and I like to have the comfort of having a spare in reserve and to take away from home]

    This is fantastic. I have two kids who colour in and use pencils frequently. I always used to have to sharpen them with a fiddly little handheld sharpner or a knife alternatively. Now they can do it themselves and because the mechanism shaves the wood away its easier on the pencil and the tip wont break so easily. Plus its great for my eye liners too.
