Rated 3 out of 5Â by Krissy Wanted a sharpener for ages
Yes a knife can sharpen these, but this sharpener does a decent job and the 'lead' is tough enough. Think the price is a little high though.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by GizmoStu Just a pencil really
These are sold as carpenters pencils but when you sharpen them, the graphite it is only half the expected size, no where near as wide as a proper carpenters pencil.
If you use the included sharpener (which I don't recommend) you end up with a sharp point like a normal pencil.
Â£4 for four pencils does not represent good value but at least the lead is reasonable quality.

Pencils may be OK but the first I used the sharpener on had the lead mangled by the effort needed to turn the pencil in the sharpener and to sharpen it. There is too much wood for the blade. Much better to use the trusty Swiss Army knife.
