Thick backing paper. Solid and durable. Good quality sand paper.
on 31 July 2015
I realised many years ago that the most convenient way to sharpen pencils is to use a knife and sand paper, causing fewer pencil tips to break, avoiding wasting potentially precious and expensive pencils.
And so, when my previous roll of ”pencil sharpener” ran out, I bought this one, which, despite having the same listed grit as my previous one, does seem a little bit coarser, but perfectly fine for my use.
The backing paper on this is very thick, which makes it more durable had I regularly been using it for woodworking. Most of the sand paper I have handled in my life, mostly in school, has had a backing paper so thin it wears through very easily, making for a softer and more foldable paper, but one that you might have to throw away sooner.
So, if you’re looking for a solid and durable paper for sanding – or for sharpening pencils – I can recommend this one.
