As everyone remembers from grammar school as you get to the end of sharpening a pencil, just before the pencil is razor pointy, one false move and the point will break, getting stuck in the sharpener. The reason this happens is that if the sharpener is aggressive enough to do a decently fast job on the wood, it will be too aggressive on the fragile point, causing it to break.

The professional solution is a two stage long point sharpener. These pencil sharpeners from Blackwing (makers of incredible pencils) have two steps. First of all you stick your pencil in the first hole (intelligently labeled "1") and spin the pencil around shaving off just the wood. The sharpener bottoms out and stops cutting when enough lead has been exposed for the point. Then you switch to the second hole (again helpfully labeled "2") and spin the pencil around, taking a far finer cut which will result in a beautiful, long-lasting, long point ready to record you most precious thought, musings, measurements, and corrections.

Eventually, after much use you will notice that your pencil sharpener isn't cutting that that original verve. This can happen when the blades get dull. However close inspection will reveal two spare blades tucked into a cavity at the inside back of the sharpener.

Long Point Sharpener - black Two-step sharpener + pair of replacement blades. Pencils are not included.

Finally a great sharpener
By: Jim (Aug, 2019)
This is the first sharpener I’ve owned that doesn’t eat/break the pencil lead. I’m very pleased with this and highly recommended.

Who knew you could microbevel a pencil?

Overall great sharpener. Wastes a little length if you use the first hole until it bottoms out but never breaks the tip when getting to the final point. Only complaint is that the shavings from the first hole don't really make it to the compartment they're meant to, instead just clogging up against the clear cover. Not a big deal in the wood shop as I just drop them on the floor to sweep up with the plane shavings, but it would get annoying quickly if you had to go to the trash can every time to empty it.
