KUM Masterpiece vs Classroom firendly

April 28, 2019

The KUM Masterpiece (or the KUM longpoint sharpener, it is basically the same thing) and The Classroom Friendly are my two favourite pencil sharpeners. The former is a inexpensive, small sharpener while the latter is more expensive and not very portable. Both of them give you a great long point.

I use the Classroom friendly most of the time because it is a lot faster. But I also use it because I prefer the point it gives me. It is not as sharp as the KUM’s give you. Some people might think that is a bad thing. But I don’t, because sharpness is only a good thing if it is actually usable. And I think that the super sharp point the KUM gives me break too easy and sometimes tear the page.
