Welcome to dickblick
Don’t fret if quiet is needed — the Duet Pencil Sharpener toggles easily from battery to manual mode.
With a sturdy yet stylish design, this sharpener fits perfectly in any classroom, office, or household. The sharpener works equally well with graphite and colored pencils, and super-gripping feet keep it firmly in place during use.
Two AA batteries (not included) are required for battery operation.
™ Duet is a trademark.

Excellent Powered Pencil Sharpener
from San Jose, CA
I've owned this exact pencil sharpener for 2 years and it performs perfectly: easy to use, shaprens sides equally, houses all shavings in a neat, easy to clean chamber. I don't recall needing to replace the batteries in 2 years of regular use. I liked this so much that I bought a few of these from Blick to give to tutors I know. Blick offered the best price I've seen on these sharpeners. I am satisfied with the price, speed of delivery, and condition in which I received the items. I've tried a few other brands of powered pencil sharpeners and have had poor experiences from too many batteries needed, to the pencil not fitting nicely...I couldn't be happier with the Duet!

This is a nice pencil sharpener. It works well and can be used with batteries and without.
Awesome little pencil sharpener
from Dardanelle, AR
This sharpener does exactly that, it sharpens. Without fuss & without hassle. I rarely use the electric sharpening feature but it comes in handy for unsharpened pencils. It has a nice bin to empty shavings too. I would suggest this as a pure convenience for anyone who does colored pencil drawings.
I love it
from North Carolina
I've been using the old manual sharpener all my life. When this one arrived I ran around sharpening every pencil in the house. I have no other electric one to compare it to and I've only had it for a week, but so far I'm thrilled.

The sharpener does not work well. It only turns a quarter turn at a time on battery mode. It does not shave the wood smoothly.I would not recommend this to a friend.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love the sharpener. I use colors pencil as a medium in my art and I have found this sharpener to be durable, precise yet easy to operate and perfect for a crowded desk. I just purchased my second Duet sharpener and am very pleased.
Chews up pencils
from Redmond, Wa
Unlike any other electric pencil sharpener, this has nothing to stop the sharpener when the pencil has gotten sharpened. It just continues to chew the pencil up. I could use it myself, but it is useless in a classroom where I need ti for expensive colored pencils. Kids won't stop sharpening and will just chew through the pencil.
