I really like this little sharpener. The ratchet makes it so easy to use and not twist the pencil.
I also like that it can be capped so no lead of shavings spill out in your bag.

This pencil sharpener is great. I work as a substitute teacher and students (And myself) Always have issues getting pencils sharpened in traditional sharpeners. The pointy button on the Ratchetta, a small mechanical device, is a life-saver (And a pencil-saver) as it lets you take it out right when it's ready to go. I don't often use wooden pencils, but when showing off this pencil sharpener I have beautiful points to brand new pencils. The fact that I don't have to turn the complete pencil is only an extra bonus in my book.

This is a really great pencil sharpener - better than most. I am slightly disappointed with how it kind of tears the wood rather than give a nice smooth cut. There are a lot of little shavings on the pencil itself after using it and the pencil feels rough. It makes the tip very pointy and sharp though. The stop button is genius and works flawlessly every time. When there are too many pencil shavings accumulating in the sharpener it becomes more difficult to turn. You must empty it often because some of the shavings get stuck in the container. An easy method to get the shavings out is to open it over a trash can, insert a pencil, then turn it backwards—don't sharpen it—that way the middle sharpener rotates and the shavings fall out easily. I would definitely recommend this sharpener, but it is not the best I have found yet. It put to shame the other three I have though and since all the openings close up I have not had a single piece of debris in my book bag. Very smart design.

Last time I bought this I gave it one star, but another came in a kit I bought which also included Blackwing Pearl pencils and it works great with those. I have it on my desk and use it all day long. Not sure what kind of pencil I was using previously so maybe it depends. It is great with the Blackwings.

Such a good sharpener! I am probably going to buy a couple more to keep around different places I work. It is so convenient to have the notification button and makes sharpening a breeze.

Gifted to my daughters and they use them for homework away from home. So good that I have already recommended this sharpener to two different parents. I had to purchase a couple more for this school year.

I ordered this just to get above 25 dollars. I was amazed by how well it works. Definitely would buy this again.
