Sharpening coloured pencils causes wax to build up on the cutting blade. 2.We recommend alternating between coloured and graphite pencils as graphite will help to clean the blade, as well as regular cleaning as per the instructions above. 3.Turn the handle clockwise to sharpen the pencil. The auto-stop feature will stop sharpening the pencil when it has reached the preferred sharpness, and the handle will turn more freely. 4. Press the two tab buttons together to remove the pencil. 5.
