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.

A great compact pencil sharpener to throw into your bag or even carry in your
pocket. The chamber holds a good amount of pencil shavings and so far has never
popped open by accident with me. The notification button is an excellent concept
and gives near perfect points on every sharpen. The only downsides that this
pencil sharpener could have is that broken lead can be hard to get out
occasionally and the ratcheting sound can be somewhat loud ( Wouldn't use in the
middle of a test when everyone is really quiet). Other than that the ratcheting
mechanism is put to great use with this sharpener and helps when removing pencil
shavings from the chamber by rotating the blade.

It does a good job of sharpening the pencil, although turning the pencil works
just as well or better than rotating it. The button has to be pushed in for the
sharpener to work but the button does not pop up. I wasn't terribly impressed
other than the fact that the sharpener did indeed sharpen, which is more than
can be said for many portable sharpeners.
