Best Electric Pencil Sharpeners EVER! Classroom Tested
By Mr. Gooch
from OC, CA
I have been using these superb electronic pencil sharpeners in my art room as long as I have been teaching, and just bought a second one so that I can have one at each side of the room. They do a wonderful job at sharpening various sized pencils. They are made out of very durable plastic and are advertised as being classroom tested. I have gone through many other brands that only lasted a few months to a year, but these ones keep going and going. They look very nice too in their dark blue and smoked plastic.
Not the best in the world, but a slight bit above average.

I teach high school and I have 2 of them. They sharpen great, but both shaving trays broke.... The plastic pin that pushes back into the machine has broken off. Without it, it doesn't work unless you jerry rig it. Bad design X-acto. I've jerry rigged them both with hardening putty. Other than that, I've had them for 4 years and they're still going...

This is an awesome pencil sharpener. I have kids coming to my classroom from all over my school just to use it. I have only had it a month but it has been wonderful. It is true to its description on all counts.

Awesome pencil sharpener... has held up under heavy usage of both regular and colored pencils. I will continue buying this in the future.
Sharpen your talent. your wits with this X-Actosharpener
By Big Al
For openers, you can sharpen any size pencil to perfection. As an artist from the Golden Age of Marvel Comics and still drawing for the fans, This gets right to the point I can count on. No faults and as for Dick Blick an adventure, every time I order.

I would definately purchase this product again!
By The Whistler

I use the sharpener in my coloring of Adult Coloring Books. As most of the designs require very exacting detail, the point that this product provides is wonderful. I would recommend this product to anyone that requires precision sharpining!
Awesome product and great company
Had High Hopes But it Was a Disappointment
from Crystal Lake, IL
This product on many websites had such rave reviews. I got a better price than Dick Blick, which is surprising as Dick Blick has fantastic prices and can't be beat on most items I purchase. Anyway, I bought it because of the great reviews on other websites, I liked it had a variety of sizes and a large catcher for the shavings as well as it was sturdy, which were all spot on. The problem, it does not sharpen well at all. I tried several different #2 pencil brands and it did not sharpen evenly. I did not dare try my expensive Caran d'Ache Luminous colored pencils as I was afraid it would ruin them. Very disappointing. I must add, it is really hard to find a great pencil sharpener. My very old one is great and still working, but I was looking for a back up - just in case....It's true, they just don't make them like they used to! I would not recommend for precision sharpening.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great but can't be repaired
I can't purchase new blades for this sharpener. I have at least 5 sharpeners but can't replace the blade. Don't like that aspect.
