I bought this in the store where is was 29% more expensive than online. Although it appeared to be good quality, it sharpened very unevenly. I returned it and tried another from the shelf while in the store; it also sharpened unevenly. Seems to be a quality defect of this model. It is made in China - perhaps that says enough! Needless to say, I'm looking for another sharpener.

Not for Classroom Use!
I put two of these up in my classroom (art), last year. The first one broke three weeks, ago - it broke off where the support "arms" meet the metal plaque that screws into the wall. The other broke a few days ago when the handle fell off. Disappointed in this brand! What happened to their quality?

Get the job done.
Nice looking with the improvement on the handle. Works well and perfect for the classroom user.

Should have read more reviews before making this purchase. When first taken out of the box it seemed like a good quality sharpener. Then reality set in -- it sharpens very unevenly. Doesn't matter how slow or fast you go, still the same results.
