Verified Purchase
Works as intended, I had always wanted a sharpener that gave shorter points. Also it's compact and features a closing mechanism so shavings won't fall out.

Verified Purchase
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!

This sharpens great. It needs a cap on the pencil opening all the shavings come out. Not portable.

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.

BEST sharpener I've ever...
Verified Purchase
BEST sharpener I've ever owned - hands down. I use it on my Prismacolor & misc. colored pencils and it works great. The blade is very sharp, and through continued use over 4-5mo. it is still working well! I usually sharpen initially on the #4 setting to shape mostly the wood into a longer point, then dial to #2 as I'm using the pencil to sharpen just the lead. I had been using one of those metal, triangular, 3-hole sharpeners and I am much happier with this one.

Verified Purchase
I expected a normal pencil sharpener, but upon arrival this sharpener proved its worth to me.
It sharpens incredibly well. So well that if I'm not too careful around the pencils I've sharpened I might poke a hole or two in my hand!
For the more finicky of users I'd be careful when you use the door to empty shavings. Some of them can get inside of the wheel mechanism and bum around in there for quite a while. If you want to be sure the door doesn't get stuck, I'd advise to blow inside of it very carefully. You might get shavings in your eyes if you're not careful!
Altogether this product is very satisfying, and worth the price.
