In general, the thing you were trying to avoid in high school was the double wedgie. A single was bad enough, but to have it followed by a second, generally harder wedgie was beyond bad. Your underwear would never be the same.
Luckily, this German made Brass Double Wedge will not permanently alter the state of your tighty whities. It’ll just keep your pencils crisp and sharp. If you are a Ticonderoga Laddie fan as well as a Deadline 612 fan (probably the best writing pencil I’ve used, but no longer made and quick to dull, hence the need for a good sharpener near by) you’ll like this sharpener. Replaceable blade, but you’d have to sharpen a TON of pencils to need to do that.
