    First, this pencil sharpener only has one “blade” inside to sharpen the pencil. Without having a second, opposing blade inside, the pencil is always pushed away from the blade and sharpens off-center.

    Next, the vacuum base never stays put through even a single sharpening cycle.

    And the final straw, the other day, after having this for less than six months, the plastic shavings receptacle came apart (it’s two pieces glued together), spewing sawdust and pencil graphite all over everything.

    I strongly recommend against this one.

    How I love this sharpener. It reminds me of when I was a kid in the classroom. I bought this because those little handheld ones always broke the tip off my pencils. The electric ones were too fancy for my needs. I just needed a good old-fashioned pencil sharpener, but I didn’t want to mar any tables or walls. This one is vacuum mounted. What a vacuum it is. Just a flip of the lever is all it takes and that thing will not budge! It is solid and works like the ones we had in school that were screwed down.

    Does it sharpen my pencils? And how! They do the job quickly and perfectly. No more broken lead for me!

    I store this in my desk, where it gets banged around a lot. Maybe I shouldn’t do that. I don’t know what I’d do if it broke and it’s no longer available. Still, it’s held up, no loose parts, no broken plastic. For basic pencil sharpening needs, this pencil sharpener fits the bill.

    UPDATE: This unit was great while it lasted, which was about 18 months. I had to toss it an buy another pencil sharpener. Too bad. I did like the design.

    Bought this based on other positive reviews. It’s sharp and stays stuck to smooth surfaces, but the down side is that it only has a single sharpening cartridge. This causes one side of the pencil to get sharpened correctly, but the other side still has wood left on the lead almost all the way to the tip. Also, it’ll let you sharpen the pencil away to a nub if you don’t stop to check progress.

    Fine for cheap or occasional use, but those two things are annoying to me.
