KUM Glass Pencil Sharpener
Timeless and elegant!

The KUM glass pencil sharpener with its extraordinary design is one of the finest pencil sharpeners available. The timeless and elegant look and the high-quality materials make this product a real highlight on every desk.

The magnesium-sharpener with a razor-sharp high-carbon steel blade sharpens 8mm pencils to a perfect point …over and over again.

All our sharpener blades are equipped with the unique Dynamic Torsion Action system.  Due to the curved blade form, the cutting edges are under constant tension and cannot “curl-up” as a result of the ensuing pressure during sharpening.

This in turn prevents pencil tip breakage and feathering. Furthermore, the pressure against the screw-head prevents it from lifting or loosening.

Dew Drops
Add dimension to any Art Project

Dew Drops are flat-backed acrylic beads that can be added to most mixed-media art projects. Simply add a dot of glue (preferably a clear-drying glue) and then add the Dew Drop on top of the glue.

Dew Drops come in several different sizes and shapes. These wonderful little glossy drops are a fantastic way to add dimension to an otherwise flat surface, add some color to the bottom of a vase, or let your imagination run wild! Each small bottle contains approximately 150 drops, including 5mm (wide) x 2mm (high) circles, and 10mm x 8mm tear-shaped drops in coordinating or contrasting colors. Tear Drops are available in a variety of shapes and colors and coordinate well with Dew Drops and Diamond Drops.
