It really is perfectElectric and battery powered sharpeners bother me because you have to depend on one more thing that isn't necessary. Nothing beats a good manual sharpener and the feeling of controlling the process rather than letting the machine decide. There's something very tactile and rewarding about holding the pencil and feeling when the blades tell you it's sharp.Love the sharp chrome finish. Love even more the ability to mount it under a countertop so it's both highly accessible and out of the way. Yes, I mounted this to the "ceiling" and the shavings chamber flips the other way just fine. 5Don't give up too soonBefore buying I was a bit weary reading other reviews that describe an unbalanced sharpened point (one side sharp lead exposed, the other side still wood). I actually experienced this as well when I first started using it and was about to pack it up and return it. HOWEVER, I quickly realized that if you hold the pencil with a semi-loose grip to allow the pencil rotate in your hand naturally as the blades rotate and "catch" on the areas with the most resistance on all sides, you will end up with a very sharp (and balanced) point they way you'd want. If I hold the pencil firm enough so that the pencil does not rotate, I end up with a lop-sided point that is only usable on 1 side. Allowing the pencil to rotate in your hand does not feel 100% natural because I've never had to do that with any other fixed sharpers, but it's easy to get the hang of. Maybe that solution would only work on mine, but I'm assuming that many people with that issue were too quick to give up as I almost did as well.I also like the "old school" feel to this - every time I use it I remember using almost the exact same type of sharpener in grade school. Great price too.The reason why it is 4 stars as opposed to 5 is that the machining does feel a little bit flimsy (which is reflected in the price I guess) and it's a bit tricky to install using the screws provided (tip: I used longer screws that I had laying around and I also found that removing the metal housing while installing is crucial to allow the angle of your screwdriver or drill to drive the screw in correctly. 4The BEST pencil sharpener that actually sharpens the RIGHT way!It is critical that you have a working reliable and high-end pencil sharpener if you are going to use pencils in any regularity at all. After wasting money and time not to mention damaging Prismacolor pencils on a crappy Prismacolor pencil sharpener (the irony!), I decided to invest in a pencil sharpener that reminds me of fond memories of days long gone. This pencil sharpener WORKS and I'm already crazy about it.I sharpened over 20 pencils yesterday. It didn't mess up once. The pencils which the previous sharpeners had broken sharpened just fine, and I used a variety of different pencils. You can adjust the size by switching to the right knob up front.It is important to install this somewhere on a wall or a desk or a flat surface where it doesn't move. That is key to having success with this model. Also, your finger may get red and tired from sharpening 20+ pencils at a time (yes, I know, I'm an overachiever!) so watch out.BEST pencil sharpener I could ask for. Now I have everything I need to continue with the coloring business :)! 5Only worked for a whileI purchased this pencil sharpener for my classroom because it reminded me of the pencil sharpeners we had in school when I was young. It worked great for about a month and the pencils got sharp quick and effortlessly. Then the handle became loose and wasn't catching on the mechanism that makes the blades turn. Fixed that, fast forward to a week later and the metal collection compartment becomes loose, it won't stay on the pencil sharpener. That wasn't really an issue because I mounted it vertically so the metal compartment just loosely sits in place. A few days later my students tell me the pencil sharpener isn't working. I take off the metal compartment and when I try to crank the handle the blades do not turn. The handle turns but the blades aren't turning. It isn't an issue of the handle not being tight enough because even after tightening it still won't turn the blades. I completely take off the handle to see if I can fix it and the screw that holds the handle to the pencil sharpener looks like it is stripped and possibly a defective screw because it's got a deep gash in it. I purchased this pencil sharpener because it had very good ratings and it's a well known brand, unfortunately it has not been a good pencil sharpener for my classroom. 1I love this thing!!I am really loving this pencil sharpener. I was so sick of automatic pencil sharpeners breaking down after a half year of home use (which isn't that much). This pencil sharpener seems to be heavy duty and I am hoping it will hold up for a good long time- especially since it is manual and there is no motor or electronics to break down. My 6 year old finds it easy to use and she also thinks it is fun enough to as if she can sharpen an entire package of pencils. I am pretty sure that after the pencils reach a certain sharpness, they stop sharpening more, as all the pencils are about the same sharpened length. I also like that it has different hole sizes, although I imagine that I personally, wont use them other than the pencils.I wish I would have bought this last year instead of spending nearly $50 on automatic pencil sharpeners that killed over after hardly any use. This automatic sharpener is so less frustrating and does such a better job! 5Can't screw unit down, Don't BuyThe sharpener itself is great as a sharpener. The problem is the base of the sharpener where the holes for the wall or desk attachment are happen to be too close to the sharpener unit and it is IMPOSSIBLE to screw the sharpener down because a screw driver or screw gun can't effectively screw anything down because the sharpener is in the way. If you have someone hold the sharpener while you sharpen it is usable but as a one person, stand-alone unit it is a waste of money. The designers figured they would save a buck by the making the base smaller but never bother to try screwing the unit down with holes practically next to the sharpener.Do not buy.Look for a sharpener with a wide base so it can be attached to something and used effectively. 1Highly recommended...get oneWow...I'd read some unfavorable reviews...but really...you must have gotten a bad copy. This is a great sharpener...just like the one I used in grade school...although, the name is different. It has two cutters that are razor sharp, and it only takes seconds to sharpen a pencil to a nice point. The wooden part of the pencil is nicely shaved...and smooth to the touch.Whats not to like. I purchase this one after my decades old electric pencil sharpener failed. It was purchased for the grandkids...and they love it too. I mounted it in the garage, so it's out of the way and yet easily accessible.It's so sharp that you need to be careful of over sharpening. Today's pencils sometimes have the lead slightly off center...and it that's the case, the sharpener may not stop when the pencil is sharp. The pencil lead just does't hit the back of the sharpening mechanism and it will keep going.A little practice and you'll be very happy that you purchased one of these finely crafted pencil sharpeners. 5CHEAP AND FLIMSY PIECE OF JUNK. DON'T BUY UNLESS YOU DON'T MIND BUYING NEW ONES EVERY FEW MONTHS OR SO.This pencil shapener seemed like cheap junk to me when I received it, but I put it up on a post in my garage and proceeded to sharpen pencils. I used it for 3-4 months with no problem, but little by little the pencil leads started looking lop-sided and I had to trim the bad side with my pocket knife. :o( It finally got so off center that It wasn't even worth trying to sharpen. I tried any and all the holes to no avail. The grinding part somehow got off center I guess. I regret sending my old time 50's school sharpener to the thrift store after only a few months of using this one. If I could give it zero stars that is what it deserves. Just for not lasting. I was right. CHEAP PIECE OF JUNK. DON'T BUY!! 1Absolute garbage. There is no lelag way for this piece ...Absolute garbage. There is no lelag way for this piece of junk get 1k positive reviews.0) This thing is supposed to be screwed to the table. There is NO way to use it the other, regular way.1) It breaks pencils instead of sharpening them. The tips are asymmetrical. They are getting broken while you sharpen them.2) Sharper literally eats pencils. You can loose 20% or more of your pencil at the time.3) Once the tip of the pencil stuck inside, there is no way to take it off. Absolutely.4) The lid is very loose, easily dismounts when you don't expect making mess on your table.I tried high quality Prismacolor and Koh-I-Noor as well as cheap noname. The sharpener screwed them all equally.Even the most cheap Chinese plastic sharper would give you a better result.Please move along and choose other brand or model. 1Don't hesitate!Exceeds my expectations. When I ordered this sharpener I didn't get my hopes up, I just wanted a sharpener that was better than the piece of crap electric one I wasted my money on. I wanted one that worked like the old school classroom sharpener. Well I got what I wished for. Some reviewers said the metal is thin and cheap. Yes, the main body that encases the "insides" along with the shavings is not made of cast iron. It is thin metal, but to me that is not a big deal because it doesn't actually do anything. The sharpening apparatus is quality, and sharpens every pencil wonderfully. I haven't had a single problem with this device. I mounted it to the under side of an upper cabinet and it is very sturdy. Overall I am very happy with this purchase (especially for the price!) and am happy to have sharp pencils again. :) 5
