Shock waves....

I do realize this bit of information is going to send shock waves through the colored pencil community. Please note, I said one of my students reported this information to me. Perhaps I should have called Panasonic myself before posting. I do know first hand that they are out of stock just about everywhere. Have any of you called?

I called Linda, yes, it is true. All panasonic sharpeners. Now.. how many did you buy up????

lol.

So, what is out there on the market now, is all that there is going to be.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! This is terrible. I confess, I bought one, and electric like I've been using for years. I got it off Ebay...new from an estate sale. I couldn't believe how beautifully it sharpened. Now I knoq how worn out the other one really was. I'm not sure we can fine anything near the quality of the Panasonics. To give it a try, I bought a battery operated sharpener from Staples. It sharpens fine but the Prismacolors barely fit...the Derwent Coloursoft will not.

I am going to get on ebay, and see if I can get one of those Panasonic sharpeners for myself. I just want to let you know that I absolutely loved the workshop this weekend. My first love has been watercolor until this weekend. I've taken art and studied it for years, but until last summer I never even entered a show because I really didn't think my stuff was all that great. I only entered because a friend of mine kept on pushing me to be in The Little River Art show. I can't tell you how completely shocked I was when I won 1st place. I have my masters in Hospital Administration, and I teach Medical Billing at the college, but I've always wanted to be an artist and had been too afraid to come out and admit it because I didn't ever think I could really do it. You are so inspiring, and it really made me feel like... "You know I am an artist, and the more I keep on keeping on going at this the better I'll be."

I bought an I-point the last time I needed a portable sharpener, because they were readily available and I didn't have time to order one. They have the same sharpening mechanism that the panasonics did, and sharpen at the same angle... however it was a tight fit with my home made pencil extenders (which i'm putting the easy directons on my blog soon for everyone)in use. So.. I did the old cowgirl ingenuity trick.. I took my trusty pocket knife out and reamed the hole in the plastic casing just a hair larger.. lol.

Panasonic makes more than one sharpener. What is the number of the one you use, or shape or something?
