    Great product

    Comments about Bostitch® Manual Pencil Sharpener:

    WOW! This product has two barrels that sharpen the pencil and does it perfectly! The great thing is that you don't have to screw it into anything. The product comes with a clamp that fastens the sharpener to a location such as a desk or table. It also comes with screws if you decide to use them. Just awesome!

    Great for schools!

    Comments about Bostitch® Manual Pencil Sharpener:

    We bought about 30 of these for the classrooms at our elementary school. We are midway through the second year using them and I've only had to replace 3 (1 of which was due to a child trying to sharpen the eraser end of his pencil...so not a product fault). This is a WAY better track record than past models that we were using. The main design flaw that I would point out is the handle. The little spinner/grip thing on the end has broken off of some of them which just leaves a metal post. It still works, but it would be nice if the metal post just had a wide ended grip on it instead of this plastic that isn't very durable.

    Does The Job!

    Comments about Bostitch® Manual Pencil Sharpener:

    Secured this sharpener to the side of a wooden cabinet and the sharpener works great. It sharpens my kids' pencils like butter. The pencils get nice and sharpened, without waste. My son and daughter love how sharp the pencils get. The multiple size holes came in handy, as I needed to sharpen some other pencils, that were thicker than the average pencil. The housing holds a good amount of shavings, so you don't have to empty it for a while. My kids could use it without a problem. I would definitely recommend this sharpener to friends and family. This is well constructed and should last for years.

    Lives up to the Bostich name

    I bought this for my wife for her 4th grade classroom. Her previous electric pencil sharpeners always fail after one year. I convinced her to go old school and get an all metal wall mounted sharpener. She loves it and it's much quieter than the electric one.

    Seriously this pencil sharpener is awesome! We had an electric one that died. So we bought this one and mounted it on a wall stud in the basement. Now we can sharpen pencils forever! Sturdy and a workhorse! Great product!

    Quality Metal Sharpener

    By goldie

    Comments about Bostitch® Manual Pencil Sharpener:

    This old style manual sharpener arrived very fast & was well packaged. It has adjustable dial on front with many hole sizes that should fit any pencil. The motion was so smooth, it was a pleasure to use. It actually sharpened easier, (& a lot quieter), than the old electric we had in the office. I mounted it on the wall - had a spot picked out for it. I wouldn't even bother with the temporary clamp mount option. It's pretty near useless, but if you want it in a permanent location, this works fast & smooth & sharpens very evenly around the pencil. I'd recommend it to anyone.

    Fabulous sharpener

    By Aide 52

    from Columbus, OH

    Comments about Bostitch® Manual Pencil Sharpener:

    I bought this sharpener to use in the classroom. The old one was difficult for the young students to use and I spent every morning sharpening pencils for them until my hand and arm could take no more! I decided it was time for a change and this one is great. The handle has a much larger piece to grip while in use and the operation is very smooth and easy. The old one used to sharpen just one side of the pencil and rendered it almost useless. This one does a great job of providing a sharp point in just a few turns. The students were so excited about sharpening their own pencils again that they filled the shaving compartment so full that it was packed tight and I had to dig the shavings out. Great sharpener for sure!

    Sharpens well but handle breaks

    We ordered a couple dozen of these for our school. They sharpen very well but 90% of the handles broke within 6 weeks.

      Comments about Bostitch® Manual Pencil Sharpener:

      I ordered an old fashioned manual pencil sharpener when my electric sharpener got clogged for the last time. I decided to install it on the wall in my son's bedroom "office", where he does his homework. I believed that this would be a reliable choice since I grew up with a Bostitch manual sharpener, and we had them at school when I was a child. I wanted something that sharpened pencils dependably and evenly, without the need for electricity.

      This one is not it. At least the particular sharpener that I have now. It eats through pencils quickly, but unevenly; exactly the opposite of what I was looking for. No matter how I try to sharpen pencils, only one side ends up sharpened, but only after half of the pencil is gone.

      My customer service experience with Quill.com has been great so far, so I feel confident that I should be able to easily send this back. I will probably order another manual sharpener, but only after I research another brand.
