    Nice, I like that they have been shaved down and not sharpened in a rotary sharpener :D

    Yes, that's true. Most people in China do not use the rotary sharpeners, it's not as easy to write Chinese characters without some flat sides. Children here all have Xacto knives instead of regular pencil sharpeners.

    doesn't seem to cross anybody's mind that Xacto blades can be used as a weapon. Much like kids don't really use pens and pencils to stab each other much.

    Always with mine too! Makes the pencils last longer. Learned that in art school.
