I am so very excited! My very own world's greatest pencil sharpener came in the mail this week! I was so excited to open the box and see the amazing goodness!
(Please ignore the terrible quality photos - my camera lens won't open so I had to take phone pics)
I quickly took it out of the box and couldn't wait to get sharpening!
I was a bit perplexed as this isn't your ordinary pencil sharpener. You have to squeeze the handles and pull the sharpener out while at the same time putting the pencil in the hole. Then as you sharpen, the pencil will slide in towards the base until it is perfectly sharpened. I thought it was going to be a waste and eat up a huge chuck of pencil but it knows just exactly the right length it has to sharpen to perfection without being wasteful. I had to watch the video on the website to learn all this because it was a foreign concept to me. The video cleared up any confusions and I was ready to go!
Here's the pencils before:
Here the pencils after:
See the amazingly pointy tips! I always use mechanical pencils because I only like pencils that have the pointiest tips. After using this sharpener I won't be needing my mechanical pencils again! Now I can put all those penny pencils I got at Staples thus summer to good use. This takes the cake for best sharpener ever!
