Appreciate the fine quality of this product.
Fun to have easy to find!
By Abstract Kate
I actually own 3 of these great little sharpeners - so one is always handy. Their fun bright colors make them easy to find. They sharpen my pencils perfectly and I have given several as gifts. Like it!!!

best sharpener for color pencils I have found.
from Sequim, WA
I use this sharpener for color pencils mostly. It is the best I have found that also collects the shavings. No more zip bags when traveling! The glass is thick enough so that when I drop it doesn't break, always a plus. I would suggest this product to all that ask.
nice heavy weight
I bought this sharpener to use with my colored pencils, thinking that it would be dandy for quick re-pointing and save a trip to the electric sharpener. It is nicely weighted and the bottle contains the shavings, preventing a mess. However, it does not give me the nice needle sharp point I like to work with. Might work well for other uses.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
absolute favorite pencil sharpener ever
from Madison, Wisconsin
I misplaced my Alvin pencil sharpener in my last move and tried to get by with other hopeful substitutes, but nothing could match the reliability of this sharpener. I absolutely love it and recommend to anyone, whether artist or pencil pusher!
Best Sharpener Ever!
I have these little sharpeners all around my home and in my two studio spaces.It is strong, reliable, and attractive as well!I sit them in the window so the light can pass thru them!
from South Carolina
I've had mine for about 12 years and it is the best! I have had more success with it than the Prismacolor brand. My sister-in-law is a professional artist and she recommended it to me. When she teaches has all her students using it. Dick Blick's price is the lowest too. Lower even than Amazon!!

Trouble with lids
By Jack the Birder
from Portland, Oregon
I have had nothing but problems with the lids on these sharpeners. I have bought at least six over the pass two years and the tops keep breaking where the sharpeners are, making the sharpener fall into the glass jar and making the worthless. I have contacted the company and they do not sell the lids seperate. What do you do with a eight dollar jar. Use them a planters. I will not buy any more. They lasted a average of 4 months.

Best Pencil Sharpener...Ever!
from Island Lake, IL
I have had this pencil sharpener for 7 years now, and I have had no issues with this. I am a clumsy person and have dropped this off of tables more times than I can count and I don't have a single crack in it and it sharpens better than any other sharpener I've ever used.
