“This little box sharpens pencils so precisely that I had to turn down the point so that it was a little rounder for my children (they press so hard that the point as set broke immediately. The adjustable pencil hold was able to sharpen some larger diameter pencils that wouldn’t fit in our previous machine. You can’t over-sharpen and loose valuable pencil length and the drawer is easy to remove and empty of shavings…..”

“Best thing about this sharpener is that it sharpens in all sizes. I have a color pencils that are thick and varies in different sizes in my class and this sharpener can cut em all. You can also control the sharpness of the pencil by the adjusting this knob on the back. this is important to me because my students won’t be breaking so much of the pencils if i dull out the edge of the pencil. It’s also small enough to carry around just about anywhere….”
