Product Description

Don't be fooled, it's not a working camera, it's just a pencil sharpener. It can be adjusted to match the size of most pencil widths and has a handy tray for removing the sharpenings.

A very fun design that looks great sitting on a desk.

You can really adjust the sharpness of your pencil and the sharpening of pencils is consistent.

This pencil sharpener works so much better than our electric pencil sharpener.

One wonders who designed this thing? It's pretty silly. A twin lens reflex camera that's a pencil sharpener in disguise? Who could have come up with it? It even has a lens that lets you look into the drawer of shavings.

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.

UPDATE on 02/26/2014:
#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.

This little box sharpens pencils so precisely that I had to turn down the point so that it was a little rounder for my children (they press so hard that the point as set broke immediately. The adjustable pencil hold was able to sharpen some larger diameter pencils that wouldn't fit in our previous machine. You can't over-sharpen and loose valuable pencil length and the drawer is easy to remove and empty of shavings. Needs to be held down with one hand quite firmly while turning the sharpening handle. I am thinking of buying another just for colored pencils.

I purchased this sharpener after my battery operated model gave up the ghost after only two pencils! I'm swearing off battery operated contraptions. I had a very fancy pencil sharpener that I bought at an art supply house (paid $30 retails for $60) that I was using instead, however, I was never truly satisfied with the points made by it. I figured I would just get a simple hand crank model and make do. Well, the Kikkerland Camera sharpener is not "make-do," it work superbly, even better than its expensive mate sitting on my desk. The "camera" holds your pencils and has a nice skid-resistant pad on the bottom. Easy to use and makes wonderful sharp points that all my students love.

Pull the face of the camera away from the camera body and lock it in place. Press the face button to allow pencil to be inserted. Insert pencil until it stops. There is an adjustment screw that adjusts how sharp you want your pencils - it is located on the crank part of the handle. Unscrew the adjustment screw for sharper.

As other reviewers have mentioned this sharpener will get destroyed if used by little kids. Kind of a fun gadget that does an awesome job.

This is a pretty fun looking pencil sharpener which was my first attraction to this product. The reviews clinched the deal that it sharpens like a champ. I have two kids who own a million colored pencils, lead pencils, charcoal pencils... and it takes FOREVER to sharpen all them with a little single handheld sharpener: Maped Tonic 2-Hole Sharpener with Metal Insert, Assorted Colors (006900).

With little practice, it was easy to understand the mechanics behind this simple sharpener. I like the pressure grip that helps the pencil along while you sharpen. I didn't look at the directions on the back of the box before use which I recommend. Though it didn't take me long to figure it out, directions really are a no-brainer. Also, good thinking to make a window for the shavings. Nice to not have to check the drawer constantly.

The only improvement and I can't give an answer as to a solution to this problem but tips get broken off ans stuck once in awhile. I figure this out after some tinkering but I won't be sharpening charcoal pencils often since the tips are harder than graphite and wax tips and took skewer to force it out from the middle. So if your pencil doesn't sharpen there is probably a sip stuff inside and poking a sharpened pencil in takes care of the jam. Other then that, it took me an hour to sharpen all the pencils I had which used to take me a whole afternoon with a little handheld single sharpener. Great buy, fair price, and I enjoy displaying this little nostalgic camera.
