Finally!! We have found the best pencil sharpener we have ever used. The Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpener is by far the best pencil sharpener. We have an electric sharpener, and several different hand held ones. We actually just started buying mechanical pencils because we didn't like sharpening our pencils for school any more. We were eagerly waiting for our new pencil sharpener and hoping that it worked at good as I had heard.
The Classroom Friendly Sharpeners come in seven different colors and I was glad we got the purple one. This pencil sharpener works a little different than any I have ever used. The front cover plate extends out and grips the pencil. While you turn the handle to sharpen the pencil this plate pulls the pencil into the sharpener itself. When the pencil is very sharp it will become easier to turn the handle. The black levers on the top are used to grip and release the pencil. There is a little drawer under the blade that catches the shavings and it easily removed for disposal.
We were all surprised at how sharp we could get our pencils and the girls love them that sharp when they are drawing. Alaina liked using this pencil sharpener so much that she sharpened all of our pencils. She also takes it throughout the house when she is drawing or coloring with colored pencils.
We did have a pencil lead break off inside our blade housing and we could easily clear that by removing the handle.
This is by far the best pencil sharpener plus it is the easiest to use and the most quiet. I'm so glad we found Classroom Friendly Supplies.
