Description

The Faber-Castell Trio Sharpener is a reminder that a pencil sharpener is such a basic piece of your everyday kit that it's really worth treating yourself to a good one.

  • Combining three different sharpeners to fit standard graphite pencils, standard colour pencils and jumbo pencils, it features a container to catch all the waste and is comfortable and easy to hold, thanks to its triangular shape and Faber-Castell's award-winning non-slip grip zone.
  • We won't pretend that the Faber-Castell Trio Sharpener makes sharpening your pencils a pleasure, but it certainly makes it a lot less of a chore.

23rd July 2021 Reviewed by Ian Hogg Used the mid- and large sharpeners and it works ok. If I had any criticisms it would be that it is slightly difficult to open, although should get easier in time, and the pencil shaving container could be a little larger. Build quality is good. Very good for anyone needing a mixed pencil sharpener.
