Chisel tip

White charcoal pencil sharpened to a chisel point

The chisel tip is one of my favorites because it allows me to switch shadings and line work.

Sharpen a pencil lie this by holding at an angle and rubbing across a coarse surface such as a sand paper pad. Use the flattened side for shadings and the edge for crisp thin lines.
