The innovative ratchet mechanism in Sonic's Ratchetta 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, and a lid for covering the pencil hole when not in use.

This Notification sharpener has a button that you press down before sharpening. As you sharpen, when your pencil point is sharp and ready, the button pops up with a click sound, notifying you that you are done sharpening. Thus your pencils are saved from over-sharpening.

This thing is great....
Verified Purchase
This thing is great. Tried it right away with Stabilo "All" 8400 series colored pencils. They are very soft and notoriously hard to sharpen without breaking the lead and this sharpener brought them to a long, fine point with little effort. The ratcheting mechanism works great although I found the pop-up button to be negligibly useful. The one design flaw I've found is that you can't access the blade to clean it if it becomes clogged with a broken lead, but the fact that breaking leads while sharpening doesn't really seem to be an issue so far that might not matter. The chamber holds a fair amount of shavings, much more so than other compact sharpeners I've owned. I'm not sure how long the blade will hold up so i'll be ordering another one for my second drawing kit.

Overly complex. The answer for the question that was never asked.

I love the mechanism...
Verified Purchase
I love the mechanism that allows me to just hold onto the pencil and twist it back and forth. It makes something as simple as sharpening a pencil even simpler (and I didn't know that was possible!) The notification system works well, however, if it's too full, I find that a sharpened pencil doesn't always trigger the 'pop'. I would have given this a 5-star rating, but it lost the one star due to the difficulty of emptying the shavings from this sharpener. I found myself spending more time than necessary standing by the garbage bin, shaking all the shavings out. Because the latch is on one side of the sharpener, the shavings that get stuck on the other side (past the blade), takes a few good shakes before they make their way out.

I do see that Sonic Ratchetta now has a capsule version out. That might be worth a try and it might solve the issue I was having with this one.

Perfect for my students...

Perfect for my students in class when a quick, quiet sharpener is needed. Just keep going till the button pops, so they can pay attention as they sharpen. More colors, please!!
