Rated 5 out of 5Â by Valentine 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.

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!

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

Rated 5 out of 5Â by skig 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!

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!

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.

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.
