It is easier to empty the iPoint Evolution pencil sharpener than you realize - place your hand on top of the clear lid and gently turn the very top until it lifts off. DO NOT try to separate the clear chamber from the base of the sharpener as this will prevent the sharpener from working (the exposed metal blades will stop working for safety reasons).

SOURCE: westcott ipoint evolution pencil sharpener

You need to unscrew (counterclock) the thin top of the clear container, grasping ONLY the very top of it (5mm high), which is screwed to the top of the gray inner cylinder that contains the blades. This clear top IS NOT glued to the clear container!
Most people probabbly do as I did first, to grasp the whole clear container (because it seems to be a single part), but again, you need to turn ONLY the very top of the clear plastic (you can notice a fine line where the screwed top ends and the big container starts.
I hope you read this before breaking it up!
Good Luck!

Hi there,

If you look at the top of the sharpener there is a small 1/4" cylinder , that will twist off, then the unti can be emptied. The hole clear part does not twist, just the "cap" on the top.



Please let me know if this helps, by rating the solution.

Thank you !

SOURCE: The tip of a pencil

Use a small nail or pin to break up the piece that is stuck, then blow out the bits with a drinking straw, maybe one of the bendy ones.

How to sharpen a pencil so the tip doesn't break


When I was in school it would always frustrate me that the tips of the pencil were always breaking in the sharpener. It took many tries of turning the pencil and turning the sharpener, different amounts of pressure and I finally found the secret.

Sharpening a pencil is a very easy thing to do. When you are using a hand sharpener, either a small plastic one with a cartridge to catch the shavings or the really small ones that don't catch the shaving, your put the utencile end of the pencil into the sharpener keeping it has straight as possible.

Applying a little pressure turn the pencil in the clockwise motion (you can turn either the pencil or the sharpener both will work). The shavings will begin to fall off and you keep turning until either you are satisfied with the sharpness of the tip or the shavings stop coming off. Make sure that you don't put more pressure on the pencil to make the shaving keep coming off because that will make the tip break and get stuck in the sharpener.

Pull the pencil out and clean the sharpener, it should be good to go. What I discovered was that if I had dropped a pencil a few times then the lead inside the pencil would be broken and this would cause the tip to break after sharpening. Treating your pencils nicely will keep them from breaking tips when you sharpen.

What kinds of pencil sharpners are there?


There are many kinds of pencil sharpeners that have been developed through the years.

The most common ones, the manual sharpners, can be of the following kinds:

Mechanical sharpeners: a portable variety, usually small and in the shape of a rectangular prism. The blade inside rotates around the pencil, sharpening it. The shavings emerge through a slot.

Blade sharpeners: small and portable, hold replaceable shaving razor blades or permanently fitted blades. They work similarly to knives, but in a more convenient and safe way.

Cylindrical cutters: larger variety, stationary, powered by a crank. One hand holds the pencil, the other turns the crank.

Another common pencil sharpener found often in offices is the electric sharpener. It works on the same principle as the manual sharpener, but the blade rotates quickly thanks to an electric motor, either powered by batteries or plugged into the electrical system.

There are still people, mainly artists, that sharpen their pencils with a knife.

How do I change the blade on a iPoint evolution pencil sharpener?


Have you tried unscrewing the small circle that you insert the pencil into? Once that part comes off the blade should be more exposed.

The tip of a pencil is stuck in the bottom of my Westcott iPoint pencil sharpener. It won't sharpen pencils all the way now. Any way to get that out?


Use a small nail or pin to break up the piece that is stuck, then blow out the bits with a drinking straw, maybe one of the bendy ones.
