    I have to agree with the "kill an elephant" comment. My kids and I sharpened our first pencil and had a "wow" moment. But we quickly learned to just turn the crank 2-4 times and our super dull pencils were ready to go. Doesn't clamp to the table and not much clearance between... Read more

    I like the size as it suits my kids both aged 5-6 respectively. So far it works well and sharpens all their colour pencils well. So I am considering perhaps to get another one for my son. None so far. Will leave another review if there are any that I can discover. It came smaller in size than I... Read more

    Cheap yet works very well Sharpens too much. You could kill an elephant with pencil. However, this is easily offset by cranking for only 2 or 3 turns. And plus side is that pencil is sharpen for longer time (small sharpening angle). Too fiddly to use by child, but since its very fast it's no to I... Read more

    Makes a sharp and long point. The dirt gets into the compartment, so you do not have to worry about it. Excellent. It's a bit heavy and large to take to school every day, but if you have an office, it's perfect. I leave mine at home, but the tip is good and lasts all day. If you turn the crank it... Read more

    - Good built quality - It works exactly like the professionals sharpeners - Very, very cheap for the usefulness - Made of plastic material but very strong built. - The sharpener came without the table fixing accessory. Without this part I can not fix the sharpener to a stable surface and I have -... Read more

    It REALLY sharpens pencils (for some it maybe a con, but for me it is good) Quality looks good. Good price. Can't be fastened to the table. For smaller kids it might be hard to use. Nice quality for the price, only missing the thing that fixes it to the table. A great sharpener, but for my five... Read more

    Pencils get super sharp. Large holder for pencil shavings. Inside looks like solid metal construction, so will maybe it will last awhile. Awkward to hold, you need small kid hands, but kids are not strong enough to operate it. The non-slip rubber pad on the bottom does nothing, you have to hold a... Read more

    I always wanted an item to personalize my space at work, and I cannot think of anything better than this usuful item. It is designed very well, has nice and bright colours, and works perfectly. Every review says it, but I think it cannot be repeated enough – it makes the pencils really really I a... Read more

    This is the cheapest hand-cranked pencil sharpener that I have found that uses a real helical cutting blade - properly called a 'burr cylinder'. (Rather than the straight edge you get on stand-alone 'prism' sharpeners.) The interior seems fairly serious, with metal mechanism, even though the is I... Read more
