Just Like My Teacher Used to Have
on 22 January 2010
This was exactly what I have been looking for - a pencil sharpener that you put your pencil into, let go, and turn the handle - it shaves the pencil until it gets to a perfect point, then stops shaving (even if you carry on turning the handle, so the kids can play with it as much as they like). It is just like the sharpener my teacher used to have clamped to her desk in the 80s. Not like a lot of auto sharpeners these days which are just normal sharpeners mounted on a motor.
I can't gush about this more highly! If you've got a box full of broken pencils they will all be sorted in half an hour, and you'll be scouring the house for more that you can fix.
