About This Product
The NJK 531S Long Point Sharpener is our new favorite for long, strong pencil points. It's more compact than other long point sharpeners, and quicker to use because only one sharpening step is required. The resulting point is a perfect balance between sharpness and durability; it's almost as sharp as the one made by our best two-step sharpener and much less likely to break. And the 531S is highly efficient, using up less of your pencil than other long point sharpeners.
A replacement blade unit is included, so you'll get a long life out of this little sharpener. We also sell the replacement blades separately, in case you need more than one. Made in Japan.
About Nakajima Jukyudo Co. (NJK):
NJK, a third-generation family business in Osaka, Japan, does one thing impossibly well. They make pencil sharpeners with insanely sharp and consistent blades that produce better points, faster, with less breakage and friction. Their motto, "light as an apple peel, sharp as a Samurai sword," reflects the experience of gently twisting an NJK sharpener and watching long, continuous swirls of cedar peel gracefully from your pencil.
These simple, incredibly well-made products are the result of NJK's eighty years of history and their intense commitment to quality control. Although NJK makes Japan's best-selling sharpener, you'll still find the company's president on the factory floor, taking part in the delicate blade polishing process that makes these sharpeners special.
