Just got this sharpener for work and I LOVE it! It's totally worth your money. I
put some really dull pencils in it and with just a few twirls, it sharpened each
one as pointed as a carpet tack. And the ability to dial in the point length you
desire is so cool, because I'm oddly particular about that. The color choices
are nice. I'm going order another one for home, and probably one for my son to
use at school.

Not such a long point.
I just thought I'd give people a heads-up that if you're looking for a really
long point, like what you get from a Kum long point sharpener, this one will
disappoint because on position 5 it's still far short of that. It's more like
the point on regular pencils when they're sold, before you sharpen them with a
regular sharpener which makes the points shorter.
The short points are great though, definitely worth it to have on hand!

I work in a library where we go through golf pencils like crazy, and it drives
me nuts that after one use, they're pretty much done. This sharpener works
perfectly on those pencils. I plan on buying a few more to keep on hand in case
it gets dull. Great purchase!

I love the ability to chose the type of sharpening this gadget performs on any
standard size pencil you try. I have had no problems with it's ability to
sharpen, so far.
However, after using this sharpener only a handful of times, it no longer closes
when you turn the dial to close. To close it you have to open up the back of the
shavings and tug at the small white arm that releases the white trap door. Also,
because the door doesn't close on it's own (and I didn't realize that for a
week) the shavings spill out a bit. Good thing I had this tucked in my paperclip
and eraser pouch! Even so, this guy got pencil fuzz/dirt all over him. I
typically keep my things very neat, organized and above all else CLEAN, so this
was a shock to find when I went to use it.
