Let's Get to the Point!

Let's Get to the Point!

I have to confess that I have a crazy obsession with pencil sharpeners.  I love a sharp pencil but it drives me insane listening to the sound of an electric sharpener.  I only allow my students to sharpen their pencils at the beginning and end of the day...they each have four pencils.  I have a manual sharpener on my wall that literally eats pencils and I have gone through at least four electric ones.  I am willing to try anything and for any amount of money!!!!

I have seen this retro-looking sharpener on many teaching blogs, Facebook and Pinterest.  I have read all the rave reviews and I finally decided to check it out for myself.  I ordered one to review and my new sharpener showed up last week....and in my favorite color, KELLY GREEN!  I have to say that I was not disapPOINTed!

I have found the perfect sharpener for my room!  It is quiet! It sharpens like no other!  It sharpens all types of pencils!  The tips are super sharp and do not break off (even with a little extra pressure).  It is very affordable for any teacher's budget. can't wait to get back to school with my new little toy.  The kids are going to love it!

Pictures below show my electric sharpener on the left and my new one on the right:

Head over to Classroom Friendly Supplies to order one or find other feedback on this tool if you need more convincing!  The sharpeners are so popular they sell out quickly, so don't wait too long.


  1. Hi Kelly!

    I LOVE this sharpener! I bought the 3 pack (because my kiddos go through sharpeners like crazy!) and they were amazed at how sharp the pencils get! The whole turning the handle was new to them--once they figured it out, they loved it as much as I did!

    The blade lasted a few months, so I would definitely recommend getting replacement blades with the order :)


  2. I love this sharpener! It works so good!!
