KUM makes some of the best pencil sharpeners,  and if I were asked to describe them in one word, it would be “quality.”

They are always sharp, stay that way for long, and they are robust, especially those made of magnesium alloy metal.

KUM Automatic Long Point is no exception, it’s one of the best pencil sharpeners out there.

But what makes it’s special is the long-point it makes our of every pencil.

How does it work?

KUM Automatic (which isn’t automatic at all) has two holes.

First one isn’t sharpening pencil per se, it shaves away the wood and exposes the lead.

The pencil was previously sharpened with a standard sharpener. Normally, the point at this point is dull.

Hole number 2 sharpens the exposed lead.

The best thing about this process is how simple and fast it is. It takes just a few seconds to get your pencil extremely sharp.

And thanks to the built-in stopper you won’t over-sharpen your pencil.

Pros

  • cheaper than the KUM Masterpiece; same long, sharp point
  • sharp as hell, two additional blades added for free
  • can be used to sharpen 2.0 mm and 3.2 mm leads (small, red holes at the sides of sharpener)

Cons

  • eats a lot of wood, A LOT
