Great for colored pencils.
I prefer the Kum Long Point sharpener for colored pencils. The reason being, that you can use the first hole to cut the wood off the pencil without cutting into the colored core. It's angled such that it only cuts the outside wood off. This is much more gentle on your colored leads. Then you may slip it into the second hole to gently sharpen the tip to your desire. I usually don't make it too pointy unless I have a specific fine detail I'm working on, that way I'm less likely to snap the tip. The only downside is that you have to empty it after every 2 or three pencils you sharpen, as the container is quite smallish. Tho that makes it quite portable too. It also comes with replaceable blades, which is definitely a plus.
