The standard battery operated sharpener allows you to sharpen 5 different pencil diameters, including extra wide jumbo pencils and you can alter the sharpness of the pencil point to suit you just by turning a dial on the bottom of the sharpener. It works perfectly for left and right handed people as you can rotate the base to achieve a comfortable sharpening position.

    My wife who is a teacher put one of these on her Christmas list and I assumed it would end up in school.

    However, it was deemed 'too good' for school and has been used exclusively on what can only be described as a 'war reserve' of pencils accumulated in our household.

    The basic construction is robust, although probably not as attractive as others on the market, I purchased it as it had better reviews than most and was on Prime.

    As you can see from the photo, it has a movable dial on the top to accommodate various pencil sizes. As mentioned by other reviewers, it has two blades which do look like cleverly mounted pencil sharpeners.

    The blade on the left will only service standard pencils whilst the one on the right can be be used to service standard to fat, although the one fat that we do have looked rather more like it had been polished than sharpened.

    Each sharpener appears to have it's own motor so it takes 4 x AA batteries, 2 for each. The battery covers are easy but secure . . . no fiddly little screw that are so popular today, and it is a simple 'slide and click' affair, as is the transparent cover on the front for emptying shavings.

    The operation is simply a push-to-sharpen procedure and I have to say, the end results have so far been impressive for standard pencils. We have had no lead breakages, save where a lead is broken the length of the pencil and you can achieve a point that would make a mosquito wince.

    Overall, we have had no complaints although I bear in mind the blunting comments from others as that was my first concern when seeing the internal mechanism.

    I was expecting to have a sharpener without having to twist my wrist, and I got it exactly what I looked for. Not so expensive yet ergonomically convenient and aesthetically wonderful piece of item next to my working desk.

    Works very well. No problems with graphite or cont Perfer it for my graphite pencils. I haven't found it to be much good with conte, or pastel pencils as the leds bread too easily. The Helical sharpener handles these better.

    So far excellent. Spent ages in the past sharpening the kids pencils and coulouring pencils for school; always in my mind to get one of these. Now the kids want to do it themselves. Joy! Works very well indeed and sharpens in a jiffy!

    I found that the box of which the product came in was slightly damaged, nevertheless the product itself was fine. I found that the product was heavy enough to stop the sharpener from moving once the pencil is inserted, and doesn't require effort to use it. However the quality of sharpness is not as good as a decent non electric sharpener, so I believe manually you can achieve a sharper point. Although it still proves to be a decent point and if you're someone who doesn't require an absolute point, you should find this satisfactory with the lack of effort needed overcomes the lack of a sharp point.

    I have just received and tested this product and it sharpens pencils with precision and speed.

    You only need to apply a small yet firm amount of pressure to ensure your pencil is correctly sharpened. The remaining features on the product are user friendly and, therefore, will present little or no confusion to the consumer using this pencil accessory.

    However, I was disappointed with the packaging. The product was placed in a slightly tight bubble lined jiffy. The outcome of using such packaging was that the box for the product was squashed and the bottom of it was open. I would strongly recommend to the supplier of this product to use a cardboard box with bubble wrap filling around the box of the product to protect it during its delivery.

    Overall, the product is value for money and, having showed this product to a family member, I have ordered the same product again at their request.

    This sharpener sharpens pencils fine, but it leaks all the fine lead shavings from the bottom,
    making a big mess on your desk.

    This has the option of sharpening multiple sizes of pencils and the base can be twisted to allow the sharpener to be at an angel which is quite useful for inserting pencils in diagnally.

    It takes four AA battery and very easy to replace and clear out the waste.

    Very good product and highly recommended.
