- Kutsuwa STAD T’GAAL Sharpener
- Dahle 133 Rotary Sharpener
The Dahle is working great and gives me a really nice sharp point! These pencils were sharpened with the Dahle and not quite the longest point setting. BTW these are my most used pencils and the colours are very similar to my standard watercolour colour schemes.
My Coloursoft pencils and watercolour pencils (Faber Castell Albrecht Durer and Caran d’Ache Museum) are a little snug in the T’GAAL and I find the Coloursoft work best at the lower settings of 2 or 3.
I also wish that the T’GAAL had a transparent body so I could see when it was full up with shavings.
In recent days I’ve heard rave reviews about Swordfish sharpeners… so I would love to hear any recommendations you have. I’m particularly interested in a sharpener suitable for my sketch kit. I’ve already gotten some great suggestions on Instagram here.
