KUM Ellipse Magnesium Sharpener
I love this sharpener, and may be one of my first ones I owned (and still have) back when I got serious about stationery goods.
But, as things go and mfgs. strip back quality, these began to appear in the U.S. using a plastic sharpener unit instead of the magnesium unit - much sturdier and likely to last a long time. The 20+ years I've had mine testify to that.
Notegeist talked KUM into bringing in these pastel-colored Ellipses for me with the magnesium sharpener. They are available in Europe with the metal sharpener unit, but the U.S. availability was only with the plastic insert for the colors. You can get a black one w/the metal sharpener in the U.S., but that's it.
For now, Notegeist is the only shop in the U.S. you can get these pastels w/magnesium insert.
