You're correct, but perhaps you missed my intent

The pics were just a "heads up". It's not the sharpener unless it's the carbon based one turning the handle. That sharpener from which the pictures were taken is a forty plus year old Boston. No special care was taken to form a point. It may indeed new cutters, but that doesn't forgive hard(er)wood wraps and off center leads. The points generated from it are perfectly satisfactory for the large majority of work. For the critical applications alternatives are available to me.
