Rated 4 out of 5�by StanJ Better pencil sharpener
I've used multiple brands of dual-holed pencil sharpeners for many years in the classroom, and this is by far the most durable and functional of all I have tried. The only competitive one is Mercurius' dual pencil sharpener, but it is prone to the blades breaking off the lid. I issue two of those per year per child. The Staedtler ones last a couple years under hard, daily use. I've only had one of these ever break in that fashion. And yes, the lid can come loose, but nothing a little tabbed piece of scotch tape won't fix. The blades are easily replaced or removed for sharpening. Highly recommend this for the classroom

Rated 4 out of 5�by rstreets Great Sharpener!!
I have had a great experience with this pencil sharpener.
I have to have my pencils very sharp, and this one works better than any others I have EVER tried for sharpness.
It also won't eat your entire pencil like other sharpeners.
The ONLY downfall to this sharpener is I dropped it on the floor and the top portion cracked, resulting in the metal piece not staying in place so I can not use it anymore... very sad.
Don't drop it (on hard surfaces) and you're good to go! :)

Sharpens well, but lid comes off too easily resulting in spills.
