    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Cheap yet works very well
    Cons:
    Sharpens too much. You could kill an elephant with pencil. However, this is easily offset by cranking for only 2 or 3 turns. An...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

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

    Good sharpener for the price

    posted by Zoli78 on 01/28/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It REALLY sharpens pencils (for some it maybe a con, but for me it is good) Quality looks good. Good price.
    Cons:
    Can't be fastened to the table. For smaller kids it might be hard to use.

    Awkward to use, super sharp pencils

    posted by amcgrrl on 03/22/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Pencils get super sharp. Large holder for pencil shavings. Inside looks like solid metal construction, so will maybe it will last awhile.
    Cons:
    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...

    sharp as a tongue

    posted by jhaluska on 10/28/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    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 ...
    Cons:
    For me it is not a problem, but the handle might seem to small when big hands use the sharpener. I cannot imagine the item to b...

    Muy buen producto

    posted by Fermoreno on 10/18/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    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, wi...
    Cons:
    Cons: The sharpening angle is rather acute. The pencils end up too sharp! Other Thoughts: It's smaller than I expected. - Which...

    Great Sharpener

    posted by toju00 on 11/24/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It sharpens your pencils very quickly and does not break the lead whilst doing so, so you dont have to sharpen again. The taper is a bit more acute thatn your usual sharpener but doesnt really matter.
    Cons:
    Only fits standard size pencils. any larger diameter ones just don't go through the hole. not the best quality but as some bits...

    Pros:
    Nice and cute, gets the pencils very sharp, and it doesn't break the tip of the lead mine.
    Cons:
    Maybe a bit too pointy. The one I received wasn't like the one pictured, but still is OK. The colours were pink and white. It ...
