Question How do I sharpen these pencils??

Ok, I need to sharpen my SU! metallic pencils and after searching my house for every size pencil sharpener (all I could find are eyeliner and lip liner sharpeners, but same thing) I noticed that these pencils aren't round they have square-ish sides. So now how do I sharpen them??
Thanks!

I used the SU pencil sharpener. It has two holes, one that is larger for the Metallic pencils. HTH

I might add it is one of the BEST sharpeners I have ever found!

Thanks for the 411, I figured that might be the answer, just needed to hear it from the experts!!
Oh, I guess i'll have to place another order for the 3rd week in a row!

One of my friends bought the SU! pencil sharpener for her 5th grader ... and it lasted the entire year and came back intact! She was thrilled ... usually she is buying two or three cheap ones a year!
My dd (in the same class) has now claimed mine!

Another vote here for SU's sharpener! I can't believe I put off buying it for so long - I LOVE it and can't live w/out it! lol
