Breaks the lead reliably, every time
I have tried multiple sharpeners (stocked at work)

Manual Pencil Sharpener
This is one of the worst I have ever bought. I haven't been able to sharpen even one pencil with it. It feels like it has a rough spot on the blade when you are turning the pencil, and it just breaks off whatever point you had left on it and you are left with a nub. I would not recommend this pencil sharpener to anyone. However, I have a 2 hole one by the same company that is perfect--better than my electric. So maybe that one was just defective, but I'm not going to spend any more money on them to find out.

SUPER SHARPENER! Art Teacher reviewer
I work in an Elementary school ART Room, and these sharpeners are GREAT! This model truly gets a workout with my kids, and I have NEVER had a faulty or defective sharpener. (As for the person talking about the leads breaking, neither I, or my students have ever had troubles with this.)
NOTE: I would NOT recommend the Office Depot-brand pencils. VERY frustrating. It's almost as if the graphite is broken up inside of the pencils. They drive my students bonkers, too.
Spend a little more and buy Ticonderoga brand -- they are a good investment -- you won't be sorry!
