The Gripsharp™ is a combination pencil sharpener/grip. Its unique design allows it to conveniently remain on the pencil for the life of the pencil. With a simple twist, the Gripsharp™ removes only the wood from the pencil leaving the lead intact. This produces a stronger, thicker point and longer lasting lead. The Gripsharp™'s Wide-Barrel design enhances grip and helps reduce the stress on the wrist, fingers and hand that can cause carpal tunnel. The Gripsharp™ allows the user the freedom to sharpen their pencil wherever and whenever they like and forever eliminates the frustration of having to hunt for a pencil sharpener ever again!
