Only wooden pencil connoisseurs know that all sharpened wooden pencils are not created equal. The length of the sharpened lead core can make a big difference in a "make it or break it" lead experience. This pencil sharpener allows you to adjust the length of the sharpened lead core. Numbers are labeled on a dial, the larger the number the longer the sharpened lead core. Levels range from 1 to 5, as well as a "close" that shuts the pencil hole to avoid shaving spillage.
The different sizing function really works! Very convenient for those who are
picky with how short or long they want their pencils to be sharpened. Will be
throwing out all my old pencil sharpeners in favour of this one!
I love the option of selecting how long or short you want your pencil to be
sharpened to! I especially like using these with pencil crayons! The blade is
sharp, and I've never had wood or lead break from using this sharpener yet.
The only downside I could find was that when I had the dial to 'close',
sometimes, the 'door' wouldn't close all the way. Also, as another reviewer
mentioned, there are times that you might get some shavings in the dial, which
can be quite annoying to see and to get out. But those are really just
aesthetics and doesn't change the overall function of the sharpener.
