DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
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....

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.

I like my pencils pointy and tend to over sharpen. I sharpened all (estimated 40) of my pencils with this sharpener and broke no tip. The only down side, and I use that term loosely, to this sharpener is that you can't let it get too full. It's design makes it a bit tricky to unload when a lot of shavings are on the opposite side of the opening. This has an easy fix so I will probably purchase more at another time. Another bonus was the color. I love orange.

I never thought I could get excited about a pencil sharpener, but seriously, this is the best I've ever used!!! Precision point every time! I found it easy to use, and really like the design. Comes in fun colors, too! I've recommended it to several of my professional artist friends, as well as friends with kids. Couldn't be happier with it.
