No one wants a dull-tipped crayon! This eco-friendly, receptacle sharpener for wax crayons is what I call an efficient sharpener! It needs to remove very little to make the pointiest of points on your child’s stick crayons again.
The Lyra sharpener has a removable, extra heavy duty, European cardboard tube bottom and a sturdy wooden top. Both are biodegradable for the long-term. A sharp, steel sharpening blade is inside the wooden sharpener which fits down into the removable cardboard receptacle.
The large size sharpener is great for beeswax crayon sticks up to 0.47” (12mm) and works well with the thicker Fila, Lyra and Stockmar brand stick crayons.
The size of the overall sharpener is easy for big and little hands to hold and use and even though it’s larger than a non-receptacle sharpener, it’s still a good size for most supply bags. The dimensions are 3 x 1.3 x 0.9 inches. However, it stands nicely on a home desk too.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
CRAFT IDEA: When you sharpen your colors, empty the receptacle after each color and save them up to remelt into little rocks in a muffin tin in your oven. Or mix them all up in the receptacle and try a rainbow color.
