Easy Out / Pencil sharpener

Easy Out

When sharpening a pencil, we may encounter such a problem that the broken pencil lead gets stuck in the pencil sharpener by accident. The usual solution adopted tends to be taking the stuck lead by tapping the sharpener on the desk or with a thin wire or a pencil tip, which is inevitably inconvenient.
“Easy out” is a pencil sharpener of new type intended for overcoming this trouble. If the pencil lead is stuck, press the button on the cover of this sharpener, and the broken part can be pushed out easily. With such an innovative design added to the traditional pencil sharpener, this product is to bring users surprising convenience.
