The best pencils are useless if your sharpener is TTT.
A lot of people rave about the KUM Long, but I've had terrible luck with mine. All it does is eat up the pencil and break the tip. Maybe I'm forcing it too hard.
You may want to try the Alvin Brass Bullet pencil sharpner.
If you feel the need for one that will hold the shavings, they make a nice inkwell model.
Do you happen to have a link to the inkwell model? All the versions I can find do not have anything to catch the shavings. However, if it is that good, I don't care if it catches the shavings or not.

I tried that and still no luck. Maybe I got a lemon.
