  I seriously like this..., June 17, 2013
I seriously like this thing. 5 different lengths and each produces a sharp tip. I already forgot if it's 1 or 5 that makes the regular pencil angle; I very quickly decided 3 is my favorite setting. Slightly shorter than normal, sharpens fast, good for sketching.

I bought this sharpener because it CLOSES. I've been having trouble with pencil shavings escaping inside my pencil bag – invariably finding their way into my kneaded erasers (which I finally had to isolate in tiny jars). I saw this sharpener and thought Huzzah!

A Note: Do please set it back to "close" after every time you use it! --->

I kept mine open on a setting for several days, when I went to close the little plastic slot had trouble sliding all the way. I thought Oh no I've broken it! It's loose and rattles and won't stay shut! BUT... after a day or so of sitting in the closed position, it returned back to its normal snappy fully-closeable self. Yay! And whew. :3 (The settings mechanism inside is plastic so it was probably starting to bend under those days of stress. Take away the stress, and it relaxes back into shape.)
  I am one of the few people..., November 20, 2013
By pat...
I am one of the few people left that prefer to use a wood pencil over a mechanical one. Unfortunately, I have had a hard time finding a compact sharpener that will provide a nice sharp point like the old school hand crank sharpeners do. This sharpener by far is the best!! I actually prefer to use this sharpener over the hand crank one I have...yes, that's right...I actually have a hand crank sharpener mounted in the garage. I especially enjoy the different settings available although my favorite would be the #3 setting.
