I purchased these to give away to school kids. They work great. Can be repaired with new blades are well built and offer two popular sizes. They also stop the pencil or crayon from over sharpening and wearing pencils down prematurely.

Very sharp blades and makes a wonderful crisp pencil point.

My difficulty with this sharpener is it isn't quite slim enough to be really portable, but not quite thick enough to collect a lot of shavings. They made a strange compromise with the size.

Also, fine wood shavings and graphite bits leak out of the pencil sharpener unless you're careful to rotate the top back to the closed position after use. The top is a little too snug to convenient slide back closed, but any looser and it would probably pop off.

If they had simply made the metal sharpener core flush to the outer edge little would leak out and you wouldn't need to close it.

I prefer the long-point sharpener, or a cheap barrel-shaped sharpener with the hole in the top, instead.

This may be my new favorite sharpener. My old reliable has been my old trusty Staedtler and my current favorite is the KUM Automatic Long Point, but this sharpener is so quick and sharp. I just love it. On an already sharpened pencil, just a couple quick turns and you have a perfect point.
