Every time I use this sharpener, it jams up with pencil shavings or breaks the lead off and it gets stuck in there. I have tried all different types of pencils, thinking it was about the quality of the pencil, but still have the same problem. The shaving that don't get stuck are nicely collected in the bottom which is why I gave it an extra star.

Rated 1 out of 5�by Sophia M. HORRIBLE Pencil Sharpener !
This pencil sharpener is HORRIBLE! Every time I sharpen my pencils, the shavings always gets stuck next to the top of the holes inside. The lead always breaks no matter what even if I haven't started to write, and I write light. I spend over 10 minutes sharpening my pencils and its a waste because it uses my pencil, sharpening w/o making me write with the pencil!! This the WORST pencil sharpener I have ever used!

Rated 2 out of 5�by hi standards Way TOO sharp
I'd like to actually write or draw with a pencil after using a sharpener, not skewer myself! Yes, the shavings are caught neatly, the design is simple and easy to use, but I need to have the point less thin. As soon as I put the pencil to paper the end snaps. Sounds like I need a pencil duller instead, doesn't it? I'll try again.

Rated 5 out of 5�by Vabby Excellent Purchase
Although I'm American I live in Europe. They have the worst pencil sharpeners there and ever since I became a teacher I realized the importance of pencils. They have become a fundamental structure in everything I do. Hence, I like to have pencils handy and nicely sharpened ones. I came back to the States looking for a good sharpener---came online to my trusty office depot and this was recommended based on my needs. It's an excellent purchase. Sharp points, don't go over board, and catches the shavings nicely, easy open and close and quick clean up. I would recommend this to anyone. A nice modern update to the always trusty manual sharpener of excellent quality.
