Wonderful Pencil Sharpener
on September 30, 2012
I just got this from Amazon. I've been using it for a couple of days. It shipped pretty quickly. I was in sore need for a pencil sharpener, but didn't want to just get any crummy one from the grocery store. Of course, I turned to my trusty Amazon reviews. This had one of the highest ratings for sharpeners. (That's how I search for new products).
I found this sharpener to be quite handy and easy to use. It fits in a small palm. You can turn it quite easily because of its curved surface. You just stick your pencil into one of the slots at the top. It shears off the wood to reveal the lead. I found a full twist and a half was good enough to get my pencil to a fine point.
This manual sharpener was a lot more ergonomic friendly than some of the other designs I have seen. It is a little more pricey than a standard sharpener but it does feature a nice catch for your shards. It is also very easy to grip. It is well made. It also arrives quickly. If you are looking for a pretty good quality sharpener for your number 2s, I would go for this one.
