Generally, graphite pencils feature robust leads and need a long and sharp point.
To sharpen graphite pencils we recommend our high-quality metal sharpeners, tub sharpeners and sharpening machines.
Please note that our tub sharpeners for graphite pencils show a "graphite" imprint so you can be sure to use the right sharpener.
Coloured pencil leads are generally softer than graphite leads which means that they require a shorter and blunt point.
Our STAEDTLER Noris Club range offers tailor-made sharpeners for coloured pencils and watercolour pencils as well as for graphite pencils with hardness degree 5B or softer.
Please note that our tub sharpeners for coloured pencil leads show a "colour" imprint so you can be sure to use the right sharpener.
