What Are Pencil Sharpeners?
A pencil sharpener can be steel wall-mounted or tabletop crank-handled, or electric, featuring auto-shut and overheat protection. Their main purpose is to sharpen pencils, manually or electronically, and reduce lead breakage.
They typically contain a drawer to collect shavings so they don’t spill out everywhere. Pencil sharpeners are traditionally purchased alongside other teaching and school supplies.
