SKU: AF9000
(3 reviews)



  • Simple and clean design
  • Sharpen to a 21-24 degree point
  • Suitable for coloured pencils and graphite pencils


This Faber Castell 9000 sharpener has two sharpening holes and is suitable for colored pencils and graphite pencils. It has a compartment which will catch the shavings from wood-clad pencils. When not in use, the sharpening apparatus will slide down into a plastic case so that graphite dust cannot fall out of the sharpening holes.

Because the leads of graphite pencils are hard and resistant to breakages, they can take a very fine point. For pencils such as these, the Castell 9000 has a fine point sharpener, which will sharpen pencils to a 21 degree point. For colored pencils, which have softer leads, this product also has a shorter point sharpener. This will sharpen pencils to a 24 degree point.

This product should be replaced from time to time, as use will mean that the blade will blunten over time.

The best portable sharpener out there. Most standard sharpeners can't fit Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencils so I was elated to find this one does. It also has a compartment for pencil shavings which closes tightly so there's no mess. I still love my handheld Kum Longpoint sharpener since I can easily replace the blades. But shavings and graphite fall out of the compartment and make a mess. I love how I don't have to keep the Faber Castell sharpener in a separate bag or plastic container when traveling.



Well made product. Works very well.



Brilliant for sharpening Faber Castell Polychromos to a fine point.
