These pictures makes me go, "Noooooooo!"
I was remembering the Classroom Friendly Supplies sharpener and decided even though I brought mine home at some point and lost it :( that I ought to at least share how great it was with you. I am also planning a big giveaway soon and hope to have one to be part of the giveaway.
Look around the internet and you will find many people raving about this sharpener. Of course you can't make everyone happy - the last time I was able to give away I had lots of great feedback and only one negative comment. The sharpener is manual, but it is very quiet. It is sturdy and dependable. The owner of the company happy replaced my blade for free after it stopped working and I tried to clean it as directed wiha video on his site. It sharpened pencils to long sturdy points, does colored pencils very well too and has a handy auto stop.
I also noticed they have a new, large opening version - great for those of you who work with younger students who use the thicker pencils.
Here is a little video I found at their website:
Head over and take a look for yourself by clicking any of the links of clicking their logo below.
By the way, I did not receive an sharpener for free for this post - I did win one once in another blogger's giveaway but since misplaced it. Boohoo!
