Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stick with the simple This non electric pencil sharpener is quiet, quick and makes the pencils oh so sharp! Just like when I was growing up. Fits any size pencil. I highly recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my Boston Pencil sharpener Growing up I always had a Boston pencil sharpener. Then they were very hard to find and the new products that were available were inferior. Looking through the Vermont Country Store catalog, I saw they had one listed. We ordered it and hung it and now we have nice sharp pencils again. Thank you Vermont Country Store for having "old time trusted" products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Just like the one we had in school!" My Daughter-in-Law who lives in Virginia mentioned a few months ago that she was looking for the type of pencil sharpener she had in school when she was a kid for my two grandsons. So I surprised her with the Boston X-ACTO Pencil Sharpener. She immediately sent me a pic with it attached to her kitchen cabinet. She said "it's sturdy and works better than she could ever imagined". They love it!
