The sharpener is not easy to understand-- but it is well designed and puts a sharper point on a pencil then my electric sharpeners. Couple points: The handle has an adjustment -- this controls the shape of the cone of the sharpened pencil. Unique as far as I've seen.
To sharpen, you pull the front (top lens so to speak) and it slides away from the body. You then open the aperture, which is a little weird since the aperture on a real camera would be on the bottom lens, not the top, but let's not be picky.(Actually there are f-stop readings where they are supposed to be, but anyhow... Stick the pencil in and leave it there. Then crank. The pencil is held in place and the pencil is quickly sharpened.
After doing it a couple times, it's easy. But what I want to know is who invented it? What a lot of work and trouble. It really is a necessity, though. If your power goes out you might want a good manual sharpener and this one is very good.
#1 For comparison or clarification, read the Top 5-Star Review for this product which
similarly talks about how to operate it. If you're ok with the operating steps, BUY IT !!
#2 Bottom line: IT WORKS, but it's not the "just stick your pencil and start cranking" type
like the ones typically provided in schools for little kids.
First of, thanks to Amazon for quick and easy handling of full refund for this product.
This item has really good reviews, but be warned that though it looks simple,
it's not the same as the other "simple" sharpeners where you just stick a pencil in
and crank until it's sharp. This one has a couple of adjustments that adults may just
find cumbersome, but that can frustrate your average grade school kid who just wants
to sharpen his pencil quickly just like he does with school-provided sharpeners.
This is what I remember on how to use it. If anyone sees an error, kindly point it out
for other customers.
1. Stick pencil in while pressing the tab on the front upper right side.
2. Pull out upper part (like a drawer).
3. Press tab again and push pencil in until it won't go in anymore.
4. Start cranking to sharpen.
5. The upper part which you pulled out gets drawn in as you crank. When it's all the way
back in, check pencil if sharp enough already. If not, go back to step 1.
Hope this helps. Sorry if it's confusing, but that's the whole point. I was hoping to
just get a simple pencil sharpener where you just stick a pencil in then crank to sharpen.
All that matters is how it works.
We have been using it daily with my 7 year old daughter for three months now. Every single colored pencil and standard #2 pencils are sharpened constantly.
The thing is tricky to use, yes. But once you get the hang of it, it is a breeze. Even my 7 year old, after a few days, is a master of the sharpener.
It works perfectly. Want the point slightly dull like for an art pencil? turn the dial accordingly. Want it surgury-sharp? turn the dial accordingly.
We have never had a point-break or any issues.
Further, my 2 year old son is obsessed with it; he steals it from his sister when she is not looking and runs off. He is a tough kid and breaks everything, and this sharpener is not damaged at all, even after 3 months of abuse.
We keep it away from him now, just case.
For the price, this is totally worth it!
