Very good sharpener,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Swordfish 'Ikon' Desktop Manual Pencil Sharpener 8mm ref 40100 (Office Product)
I bought this sharpener for my class of 7 and 8 year olds and it has been brilliant. We have been using it for over a year and it has continued to deliver beautifully sharp pencil points. It occasionally gets a lead stuck in it, but as it is easily dismantled a quick poke around with the tip of another pencil soon solves the problem. There is one major drawback, however, and that relates to the bench bracket; it simply isn't up to the task of securing the sharpener to a bench or table. I solved this by making a wooden holder which the sharpener slots into, but going to that length to make a purchase useable shouldn't be necessary. I would suggest that the bracket is perfectly adequate for home use by one or two children, but for regular use by 25+ children it is an unfortunate weak point in what is an otherwise excellent little device.
