The innovative ratchet mechanism in Sonic's Ratchetta One pencil sharpener makes hand-sharpening your pencils quick and easy. You no longer need to repeatedly let go and re-grip the pencil while sharpening! Simply rotating the pencil back and forth does the job. The mechanism is similar to that of a ratcheting screwdriver. The Ratchetta also has a compartment for shavings. The opening has a valve, or "shutter cap", that opens as you insert the pencil. It automatically closes when you remove the pencil, so you don't have to fuss with a cap. The sharpener is easy for kids to use and comes in a variety of fun colors that both adults and kids will love!
The unique ratchet mechanism and shutter cap earned this Ratchetta One sharpener the ISOT 2014 Grand Prix award (highest place) in the Functionality category.
