Really at walmart...? Hmmmmm may have to check that out.

I have a couple that I use and i found that the artist grade sharpeners from my art supply store work really well but I keep losing them...lol...I don't remember the name of it either..they are meant for the watercolor pencils...

I tested it on a prismacolor and did a very good job. The hole is slightly bigger and the pencil wiggled in it but sharpened very nicely. My son severely warned me not to put it in the graphite hole, but it would have fit in that LOL. The coloured pencil hole is not as big as a make-up one but I tested a Lyra Metallic pencil ( which has a 4mm lead and a larger oddly shaped barrel ) and it fit and sharpened well.

I might have to go back to Walmart and buy one for myself
