Comments about Stanley Bostitch Manual Pencil Sharpener:
After purchasing many small, portable sharpeners that are completely useless, I decided to buy this one with a helical blade. I was so excited at the beautiful tips it creates, I sharpened every pencil in the house. Yay! Its manual, so no batteries needed. It easily mounts to the edge of my desk with a bracket.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It is wonderful.
By Art teacher
It is very sharp and lightweight. The blade is round,so you have to be careful when storing it.
Best manual sharpener
By art teacher
I teach art, so there are hundreds of pencils sharpened in my classroom daily. The other ones I have tried - the handles fall off, the base breaks, the wheel with the holes gets loose and won't stay in place, the inside cog strips so it won't turn. I have had these pencil sharpeners in my room OVER a year and they still work great! That is unheard of these days. Other ones just don't last! Troubleshooting tips for those that have issues - try cleaning out the sharpener - hold the pencil firm against the sharpener - make sure you screw it down to the counter with the handle off of an edge - use the smallest hole possible. I am trying to get my school to install these schoolwide. You will love it but remember to only turn the handle 2-3 of times - it is that sharp!

I bought as a present for my father. He said he wanted one of those. He loved.

I bought two of these pencil sharpeners for use in my high school art classes. They have been screwed into place on the walls and work great after two months of use.

Better than electric!
By The ART teacher
from New Orleans, LA
I purchased two of these sharpeners for an elementary art classroom. These replaced two electric pencil sharpeners that just couldn't get the pencils sharp. The kids are excited to see the points on their colored pencils now! The clamp however did not hold on either counter surface in my classroom; they were screwed in on the second day. Go back to the basics and don't get electric!

great pencil sharpener
I'm not sure what the problem is with other folks, but we have really enjoyed this sharpener and have been hard pressed to find an old fashioned one of quality like this elsewhere. Has withstood daily use by 10 kids.

Returning- antibacterial-chemical laden
There was nothing in the description that stated that this pencil sharpener was "anti bacterial" . This is for my home, not a classroom (and I wouldnt want my kids coming into contact with one in school either!) It smells terrible and will be sent back on Monday.

This product doesn't work most of the time, but when it does, it destroys the pencil.
