Oldie but goodie Been looking for a long time for a really long lasting pencil sharpener. One like I used to have mounted on my basement wall. The one I purchased looks & works like my old one, very pleased February 27, 2014
Best Pencil Sharpener I'm so glad I found this thru Vermont Country Store, plus it does not break the lead. I love it. Thanks so much!!! January 28, 2014
Just like my sharpener in 6th grade! I am always looking for my little hand held sharpener, like the ones you use for eye makeup pencils. It never does a very good job at sharpening. When I saw this sharpener that was just like my sharpener in elementary school, I was thrilled. No more short points or pencil eating for me! December 28, 2013
A Pencil's Best Friend We use actual pencils around here; you know, the yellow 2.0 manual word processor with the self-correcting feature. We looked all over our little ol' town for a real pencil sharpener; couldn't find one worth carrying home. This one does the job with ease, and will probably outlast us! December 6, 2013
REPLACED 57 YEAR OLD PENCIL SHARPENER I received the pencil sharpener and immediately put up new one. I do not think the new one will last 57 years, but at least the new one doesn't chew up the pencils. I'm still looking for a better quality one. October 22, 2013
They DO make 'em like they used to For several years I have been searching for a good, old-fashioned pencil sharpener, not one of the new electric or kinetic things that sharpen one side of a pencil. This device is like I remember from school; metal cutting blades, adjustable size ring; removable shaving collector. This is the real deal. I love it. October 15, 2013
Points for everyone! Our pencil sharpener was eating pencils, so my husband took it apart. It had plastic parts that were cracked, and he could see why the pencils were getting chewed up. He said he wished he had an old fashioned pencil sharpener like my Mom's. I happened to be looking through one of your catalogs, and there was the old fashioned pencil sharpener! I ordered it, and it works like a charm! It makes a very fine point if you sharpen a bit longer, but a more medium point with fewer turns - points that make everyone in the house happy!

Thank you! Again, you have enabled us to find us that is not available in stores. We used this type of sharpener when in grade school long ago, and it is still our favorite type of sharpener. Too bad it isn't made in America. That would have made it perfect :) December 24, 2012
