Only Ones I'll Use!
By Mrs. Morgan
from Paola, Kansas
I have these sharpeners for my classroom, and are the only hand sharpeners worth buying. They make a solid pass when turned, great for colored pencils and charcoal pencils. Be sure to empty them often so nothing gets stuck and you waste time cleaning it out. They're handy and stay clean when carried around in a bag. I'm never going back after these for sure. Great product!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Purchased this based off all the good reviews, but it did not live up to the hype. Used both Prismacolor and Polychromos in this sharpener and it did not sharpen clean and chewed up the wood on both. The wood on the Prismacolor was eaten up a bit worse than the Polychromos pencil, however; the Polychromos barely fit into hole.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great for sharpening colored pencils. The blade is very sharp for a smooth turn and doesn't seem to gouge or chip the casings.
Love this, don't have to stand over a trash can.
from Francisco, Indiana
This is a great sharpener with a very sharp blade. It is comfortable to hold and use. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that it tends to accumulate shavings and clog at the blade outlet. Otherwise, it's almost perfect and the value is great!
from Sanat Cruz, Ca
I've tried a few portables, this one cuts clean and is shape and size make it very handy.

The Price is good, but thats all...
Loved my other Blick brand buys, so I thought I would try the sharpener too...sigh. Broke a multitude of my pencils. I actually ended up throwing a few of my pencils away...pretty disappointed.But on the bright side, its easy to hold, so when you're tossing the remains of your once loved pencil, at least your hands are comfortable.

Sharpener performs well with colored pencils. It's a little difficult to open both to use it and to empty the shavings. This is better than it opening accidentally and making a mess, but a threaded (twist on/off) design would probably be easier fo the user. Still can't beat it for the price.
Best manuel sharpener
from Seattle, Wa.
I use it for my color pencils. It rarely takes 2 turns and most of the time just 1 turn, to have a very sharp point. Color pencils are expensive, so the less sharpening the better. Plus they don't break the leads. They stay sharp longer than any other manuel sharpeners I have had.
