Sonic Ratchetta Pencil Sharpener with Point Adjustment - Blue

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.

By turning the dial on this Point Adjustment sharpener, you can choose between two sharpness settings: fine point and broad point. The sharp point is perfect for precise writing and drawing, while the dull point, especially great for colored pencils, is ideal for creating softer lines.

I love the ratchet action...

I love the ratchet action on this. It has helped me reduce breakage on soft leaded pencils. As with all Japanese sharpeners, the blade has a beautiful edge and cleanly shaves pencils. Very comfortable in my hand. My only complaint is a minor one. Shavings have a tendency to get stuck behind the sharpener so you have to dig them out to clean it. This has become my favorite pencil sharpener. Highly recommend this for everyone.

This was a great sharpener when I first got it in the mail. After about a week and a half of moderate to heavy, just everyday school, the sharpener started to eat the lead and the only way it would not is if it was sharpened all the way. This ticked me off because I like my pencils very sharp and it would not get the job done.

This is my favorite pencil sharpener and now I have several to carry with me, put in my studio and at my writing desk. It gives a good point and it gentle with the lead.

One of my favorite pencil sharpeners. Love that I can choose the sharp or dull point for sharpening sketching and colored pencils. Only wish the blade was a little sharper.
