KUM is a family owned business, founded in 1919, and based in the attractive little baroque style city of Erlangen, Germany. With our 100-year anniversary just around the corner, KUM has many years of experience and tradition based on creativity, high quality and excellent customer service. KUM’s variety of products are carefully crafted both in the main plant, in Erlangen, as well as in a second production facility located in Trim, Co. Meath, Ireland.
Our high-quality cosmetic sharpeners range in size for pencils with outside diameters of 6.48 mm to 16 mm pencil diameter with blades made from high carbon steel; they sharpen precisely all types of wood and plastic barrel cosmetic pencils.
All blades are made in our plant in Germany. The blade is protected against rust and oxidation by an oil coating and it is screw-mounted onto granulate injected plastic parts (non-cracking), which will hold it tight in place.
With added technological innovations, (DBS “Double-Blade System®”, DTA (Dynamic Torsion Action®), “TipFormer®”), KUM sharpeners can form either a pointed tip, a rounded tip or BOTH. KUM sharpeners have proven their quality worldwide.
