oh sooooo happy!

We are a large homeschooling family, and put pencil sharpeners to good use! We've been unable to find an electric pencil sharpener that would last more than 3 months, no matter how top of the line we purchased. The issue was a major frustration to say the least! We even tried to go with the push lead auto pencils for awhile - those didn't go over so great either! After 10 years of homeschooling, we finally had a, "Duh!" moment, and decided to look online for a manual sharpener! They're not sold in stores these days that we've been able to find "0) This little sharpener was a great price with good reviews, a no brainer. We ordered site to store, and the item arrived at the store the next day! Our DD sharpened our entire (HUGE) collection of colored pencils for over half an hour until she got a blister - who knew a manual pencil sharpener could be so much fun, ha ha! It's a nice solid, well built tool and works great! Lovely, lovely sharp points "0) Can't believe I'm gushing over a pencil sharpener, but it's just a lifesaver around here. Plus it brings me back to my own grade school days - waiting in line to sharpen a pencil! If your're thinking about the purchase, do it. Sincerely, relieved homeschool mom~

Old School is the best way

Our original crank pencil sharpener met an untimely end when grandchildren fed it multiple crayons and grease pencils. Its absence was soon sorely missed. We have custody of our 9 and 11 year old grandchildren and 4th grade Math translates to lots and lots of pencil pushing. Using a cheap hand held pencil sharpener was maddening. I happened upon this item at Sams Club and decided to give her a try. Definitely the lowest price option in an old school pencil sharpener. Compared to the 20 year old one it replaced, the canister felt Chinese steel thin and vulnerable. I mounted it a month ago and can state with certainty that flimsy shell did not dilute its ability to sharpen pencil after pencil after # 2 pencil. It works exactly as the old school 20 year old original did - maybe even better! No complaints, can absolutely recommend without reservation. Just keep the crayons away!

Old School Pencil Sharpener

I had no idea that these pencil sharpeners were not the the norm anymore. Everyone is using a electrical one or those really cheap hand held ones at my sons school, and at home. I bought this as I was sick of all the broken pencils the handheld ones creates, and to be honest I have not been disappointed. This is just like the ones I would use in grade school over 30 years ago. I recommend this to anyone that wants a great pencil sharpener for around $10. The install was easy, I mounted the sharpener in my garage so the pencil shavings would not get in the house. I have a 9 and 6 years olds and both can use it with ease. Love it!

Good Value and quality for the money.

I am a teacher and after going through a lot of electric pencil sharpeners rather quickly I decided to buy this one. So far it is performing well - gives a nice sharp point on the pencils without much effort. My only criticism is that it was a little tricky for me to install. In order to get the screws to go in I had to remove the handle. Not very difficult but still you would think they could design it to make for an easier installation. All in all I'm very satisfied and think it will outlast the electric sharpeners.
