A lot of folks saying this sharpens only one side. Did you folks never run into this at school? Twist the pencil as you sharpen and it won't happen. Sharpening one side is common on this style sharpener. Twisting the pencil allows the teeth to cut evenly all the way around the tip.

After having enough of battery-eating weak electric models, we decided to do it "old school." I have fond memories of those sturdy, satisfying wall-mounted manual pencil sharpeners from elementary school. This model would be decent if it were manufactured properly...(but isn't that true of sooooo many things?) Okay, here's my assessment: Either one of the steel receptacle centering fins was honed at an incorrect angle or one of the twin barrel cutters was set at the wrong angle, or both.

When you were in grade school did you ever place way too much downward angular pressure on your pencil as you were sharpening it? If you ever did, then you probably also remember returning to your desk and discovering half the "lead" still covered by the wood barrel of the pencil. Employing a writing instrument prepared in such a way is like scraping and scratching with a pointy stick, rather than the smooth unfettered flow of freshly revealed graphite. I swear, what happened to product testing or, for that matter, product quality?

Fast forward to present day: No, I did not place too much angular pressure on the barrel of my present-day pencil...the afore-described result was from gingerly CENTERING the pencil in the sharpener before turning the crank. (I think I got the "centering" thing down to a science after 12 years of daily manual pencil sharpening.) And, yes, I tried many, many pencils to make sure it wasn't just a poorly manufactured pencil. I wanted soooo badly for this product to work, but it just wasn't to be :-(

It's shocking. And yet, disturbingly, I *somehow* have gradually come to expect such disappointment from my purchases over the past couple of decades.

I would pay *4* times as much money for a 100% American-made quality product...if I could *find* a 100% American-made quality product. Come on America, let's get on (or in this case, off) the "stick" and get the "lead" out!

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. :)

I've decided to replace this pencil sharpener because it has been destroying too many pencils. I have the same problem so many reviewers have had - namely it tends to sharpen only one side of the pencil when it doesn't chew right through them. In the end, I find myself having to remove the wood on the unsharpened side by hand, all too often breaking the lead in the process. We'd have -much- better luck with a cheap 50 cent sharpener, or a kitchen knife, or a machete...blender...

The product itself works fine. Just as any mechanical implement, it takes a bit of care and diligence in usage to get the best out of it. If you shove the pencil off center, it *will* chew it out. Even if you center it squarerly, depending on how the pencil itself is built it may shave one side more than the other. But the way to fix is to slightly rotate the pencil itself as you are sharpening as the sharpener doesn't see the pencil in the same position all the time.

It is reasonably solidly built that I expect it to last for quite a few years without any problem -- at least till my 5 year old son graduates to exclusively using keyboards or touch screes :=(

The beef I have with this unit is the design of the base to attach to the wall or desk. The holes are positioned in such a way it is very very hard to get a thin straight screw driver to it, much less a power driver. Even after disassembling the shavings holder and the handle it is still mighty difficult to put a screw driver to it. I had to angle the screws to reach and then the head of the screw doesn't sit flush. Do the guys who design this stuff ever try to assemble and mount one? Sheesh..

I ordered an X-Acto KS sharpener on the basis of the Boston and X-Acto brand recognition. The first pencil sharpened perfectly. After that, all pencils were sharpened off-center, so that wood was left on one side of the lead, all the way to the point. On top of that, the feature that was supposed to prevent over-sharpening only worked for the first pencil. The rest would continue to be ground away, until there was no more pencil left. I dug around in my garage and found an old, beat-up Boston KS sharpener, made in the USA, and it worked better than the new, made in China one. The difference in quality was apparent, even though the old one was well-used and abused.
