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.
