What's the little pointed stick inside?!
When you take the top off of the sharpener, there is a little pointed stick with a square block end sitting in a compartment above the sharpener holes.
What is this thing and what does it do? Is it just part of the case? It seems like a weird design to have a removable stick like that if it has no use.

What your are looking at is a stick used for cleaning out the sharpener ;) If the end brakes off or your sharpener gets jammed then you use that little stick to get the problem out!
Hope this answer helped

I use the stick to clean out the corners of the sharpener where the liner ends up.

If any liner tip breaks off inside you can use this stick to get it out. After i would use a q-tip, DRY, to rub the blade clean.

Hi applepie. The small wand works to dis-lodge pencil shavings and pieces that can get stuck between the blade. Hope that helps!
