Since hundreds of years ago, humans have used various writing implements. While the age old pencils and pens are perhaps not used as often as they once were, we still do use them to some extent. Pencils are the focus of our article today as pens do not generally require much maintenance unlike pencils which do in the form of sharpening.
Pencils are generally made from wood with a solid core of carbon or similar material which when used to write on paper rubs onto the actual paper (rather than dying it as the ink in a pen does). Since the pencil is gradually rubbed away, it requires ‘sharpening’ so that the tip can remain fine and can continue to write a clear, legible mark on paper. If a pencil is blunt then it will make messy, thick and illegible marks hence the need to sharpen it with a pencil sharpener.
There are many types of pencil sharpeners which range from a small plastic one with a single tiny blade, to large solid electronic pencil sharpeners with motors, multiple blades and a shaving reservoir to store shavings for multiple sharpenings.
Today we want to focus on one of the highest quality pencil sharpeners, the Panasonic pencil sharpener. These are electronic pencil sharpeners made by everybody’s favourite electronics company, panasonic. They feature the quality we know from all Panasonic devices.
While the cost of a Panasonic pencil sharpener can initially seem quite high and range from $50 to $150, the sharp blades and high quality build of these electronic pencil sharpeners mean your initial purchase price will be worth every penny as your sharpener lasts for years and consistently delivers a high quality cut. You will not be stuck manually grinding away with a small $1 sharpener that breaks your pencil with a blunt blade if you be sure to use a Panasonic pencil sharpener.
