Sharpening your skills

Making a good point can be difficult, especially if you’re using the wrong tool or poor technique. Read on for vital tips to help you sharpen your skills.

  • If the point of the pencil breaks off while you’re sharpening, it means the pencil is too soft. Put it in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight before sharpening so it’ll be harder and less likely to break.
  • To sharpen, twist pencil firmly and quickly, just two times around. Check and then give another twist or two if needed. The tip may break if you over-sharpen.
  • Wipe the blade and the inside of the sharpener with a cotton swab.
  • Tissue off any shavings left on just-sharpened pencil tips before using.
