Having tried numerous pencil sharpeners, including battery operated ones, which have all failed after a very short space of time, I'm highly impressed with this version. It's metal and very strong and sturdy. It works beautifully and is easy to operate. What more can I say? A pencil sharpener that actually does what it's supposed to with minimum effort. Great service from the supplier. Highly recommended.

If you are thinking of investing in a mechanical sharpener, whether for the office or the home, then without a shadow of doubt this is the one to get. This has got to be the best sharpener in the world! Over the years I've tried mechanical sharpeners much more expensive than this and they were all pretty much useless compared to this one. In the past ones I've had were clunky, hard to use and don't quite sharpen properly or you cant even tell when they are properly sharp as you are sharpening. But with this Helix one its so easy to use and you can tell when its finished sharpening it because the handle becomes less resistant while turning it. The pencils come out in a beautiful clean sharp point. Also it has 5 settings from very fine 'pointy' sharp to a normal sharpness. So if you're thinking of getting one this is it!

Thanks for reading this.

This is the sharpener I have been looking for! Strong and robust build in metal -not all plastic like a lot of other sharpeners, that can cost a lot more. This sharpener gives me the extremely long point that I require as a Colour Pencil Artist. Length of point can be adjusted as well if desired. Brilliant it does the job - and mine is 'postbox red' so it brightens up my desk too!

Brilliant buy, well worth £10. Beats any other sharpener. VERY SHARP pencils everytime. I am a teacher so kids always asking if I have a sharpener and I have to say they are very impressed with my recent purchase. The only downfall is the whole class end up wanting you to sharpen their pencil(s)!!

I bought this as I remembered them at school and was looking for 1 to stop shavings been continually on the floor. Attached it to a table, unfortunately my son didnt realise it only goes one way and turned it the wrong way, as a result it broke. I am a bit dissappointed as I thought it would have withstood a little more than it did we only had it 2 weeks and it was a plastic component that broke inside, plus the actual sharpener was quite tricky to use.

I bought this for my mother - a retired teacher - to sharpen pencils for her grandchildren - for homework etc.
I chose a Helix sharpener as it was a known brand. I would have preferred a suction attachment, as the clamp does not grip as securely as I would have thought. Often the tips of pencils break off and get wedged at the end of the mechanism - which means we have to take it out, and poke something sharp to dislodge it. So quite a bit of fiddling with it. It does not take any kind of chunky pencil crayon. Mainly just a fine pencil. But it does the job. Not as sturdy as I had hoped. Also my mother is left handed, and it is quite awkward for her to use.

This is the classic sharpener - it does a great job at sharpening and is well constructed. The clamp part of it is very poor though, easy enough to hold and sharpen at the same time but does need holding.

The sharpener feels flimsy, it does not have a sturdy feel to it at all. It sharpens only standard thin pencils. Not medium chunky or chunky ones- The 5 sharpness grades are not very different from one another. It is not user friendly. It broke after I sharpened about 20 pencils.
