I have been looking for a good desk pencil sharpener since I realized that pencils are awesome. My impression very early on was that the Classroom Friendly was one of the great ones. So I decided to get one, but did not do anything about it because I could not order one through any of the regular channels because they don’t want to ship outside the US. So, I started to look for other alternatives. And considered a handful of them. But decided to get the Classroom Friendly instead; through ebay. It was as painless as I could hope it to be. Even though the shipping took over twice as long as it would have taken through any of my regular shops.

Now, let’s get on to the sharpener. It is amazing. It feels like a quality product out of another era. Like when build quality was important, instead of cheap crap that seems to be the standard these days.

It is a joy to use, gives me a perfect point every single time. And it takes no time to sharpen a fresh pencil.

The only ting I have to say about it is that it leaves some nasty marks on the pencil. It doesn’t bother me that much, but I guess it might bother some of the more obsessive out there.
