So in my home with 3 kids, they are always asking for pencils or to sharpen them. And my kids seem to have a gift for making sharpeners disappear in my home. So I decided I would print some but all the designs I saw required either the sharpener or the blade of the sharpener, neither of which helped me.
So I grabbed my x-acto to manually sharpen the pencil and it hit me, I have a few xacto blades that I cannot use for most of my projects because the tip is broken but they would be perfect for this.
So I spent the day trying to design a pencil sharpener that would use an xacto blade.

All you should need for this print is an
1x X-acto blade #11
2x M3 Nuts
2x M3x8 screws
Now I do admit it is not the smoothest of sharpeners, and I did notice there is a major difference between a sharpener blade and an xacto blade. The original sharpener blade only has a bevel on one side unlike the xacto that has on both.
So I tried tilting the xacto so the blade would be in a similar angle as the original blades.
As you can see in the pictures it took several attempts to even get a half decent job.
