I was honestly skeptical of the of the sharpener. It looks like it would work good, but I wasn't sure about the mechanism that pulls the pencil into the sharpener. In reality it works extremely well. You can sharpen the pencil and it will basically stop when the pencil is sharp.
The sharpener came packed very well.
Here you can see the sharpener and the clamp the you can use to clamp it to a shelf.
I would like to have seen two sharpeners in here but honestly the one does a fantastic job. It creates a very clean cut and a very nice point on the pencils.
All in all I would highly recommend this pencil sharpener if you are in the market for a manual sharpener. I am very happy with the tool and have added it to my arsenal of tools in the wood shop.
Please make sure to check out http://www.classroomfriendlysupplies.com/ the sharpener is $20, the company that sells the sharpeners is based out of North Carolina. I don't believe you will regret the purchase.
