Two things to try... *PIC*

A different sharpener or sharpen a better pencil. Either should tell you where the problem is. I mostly buy Ticonderogas, which still seem to be a fine pencil, at least for the shop. They sharpen evenly with the Boston Champions I've found over the years (3 at this point if you can believe it).

That funny clamp on the front keeps the pencil centered and pushes it into the sharpening mechanism. These were a staple of drafting shops and offices for decades before electrics came out.
