Although we do not manufacture a sharpener for large-size Crayola colored pencils, we conducted a study to determine which type of pencil sharpener would work best. Hand-held sharpeners work very well and are recommended over electric or crank-style sharpeners. Many hand-held sharpeners come with two holes, one for standard-size pencils and one for larger pencils.
One of the best performing sharpeners is the Helix Hand-Held Sharpener with two holes, which is available through Blick Art Materials under product code #21401-0100. If you’d like to learn more about this sharpener, you can visit them online at www.dickblick.com or by phone at 1-800-447-8192.
In addition, some eye pencil sharpeners, available through beauty supply stores, are large enough to accommodate them.
