Comments about Stanley Bostitch Heavy-Duty Pencil Sharpener:
I used this sharpener in my art classroom every day for the first quarter of the school year. It has never worked that well. It overheated after about 10 pencils, and a few days ago it has stopped working completely. When it did work, many of the pencils were sharpened unevenly. I am very disappointed, and am hoping my replacement is a huge improvement.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Super Sharp, Nice & Quiet
By MrsP's ArtRoom
from West Palm Beach, FL
We've only had it in the classroom for a short amount of time, but it seems to be working splendidly!
By Jessica the Department Secretary
from Watertown, NY
I was hopeful this would live up to its "QuietSharp" name, but it's one of the noisiest sharpeners I've ever used. It works okay with pre-sharpened pencils, but not well at all on unsharpened ones. The tip-saver feature seems to flatten the tip, but it's not useful for me. And, it takes forever to sharpen one! I use this daily in an art lab and it gets a great deal of use. My refund is on its way and I'll be ordering a quieter, faster, and better quality sharpener ASAP.

Too much like the others
By art teacher
from the deep south
I found this product to function like so many other electric pencil sharpeners in that it only sharpens one side of the point even if you rotate the pencil. For an elementary art room where students tend to ruin pencil sharpeners frequently, I had hoped to find one at a reasonable price. I will be trying other brands.

Awesome pencil sharpener!
By Miss Art Teacher Lady
from Los Angeles
Don;t let the sleek design fool you, this workhorse pencil sharpener has outlasted those big chunky classroom models in my experience as an art teacher. I generally don't allow small children to use them and keep it up high out of reach. But I did that with the other models as well. This sharpener is kind enough to color pencils and even pastel pencils with smaller diameters ( some are huge ), however I do not attempt putting sharp points on them. At home I have the big Bostitch that lights up and man is that thing great. Puts a nice point on anything.
By Skunk Mothers
Sharpens nicely at moderate speed with very little point breakage.
Sharpens Lickety Split
from Charleston, SC
It sharpens very quickly. The pencils come out even and consistant. It is not as quick as the high powered sharpeners but for the price, it sharpens lickety split!

Disappointed with the performance
from Sydney, Australia
I saw this sharpener with a 5-star review and I bought it. When I got it, I had also gotten unsharpened pencils and decided to give it a go. I sharpened 3 pencils and on the fourth, it stopped sharpening in the middle and would not sharpen anything for the next few hours. I did not have the warranty, and I received this order on October 2nd and shipping is very expensive from Australia to the US so I did not send it back.
Merchant response: We apologize, it sounds as though you have received defective product. At Blick we attempt to send out every order free from defect or damage. However, these types of issues do arise occasionally. Customers who receive defective or damaged items should contact our Customer Care Center via email or by calling (800) 723-2787 and we will work with you to rectify the situation.
Pretty good for the price
I want to learn to draw and an electric sharpener is essential. It sharpens fast and does not take up much space on the down size, it is kind of big but, It comes with a 7 year warrenty which makes it even better for a sharpener under 30 bucks.
