We've been homeschooling for 9 years now and every year I try out a new pencil sharpener. I hope that this will be the one that works out for us but it never is, BOO! I know that a pencil sharpener doesn't sound like that big of a deal but when you and your children are constantly sharpening pencils and they break during the process or come out uneven it becomes very frustrating.
Here's a picture of several of the sharpeners we've used over the years.
Both of these pics were taken after we sharpened the pencils with our regular sharpeners. Notice how the bottom picture the top pencil was sharpened unevenly. That was from our electric pencil sharpener that we bought this year, it doesn't work very well. At first I thought that some lead had gotten stuck inside and wasn't letting us sharpen our pencils to a nice, pointy tip. Unfortunately, that was not the case. The electric sharpener just eats up half the pencil and the tip never gets very sharp.
My friend ShaRhonda over at The 4-Crow's blogged about her experience with the Quietest Pencil Sharpener Ever. I was intrigued and to be honest a little bit jealous but she mentioned that Troy at Classroom Friendly Supplies was looking for people to spread the word about their pencil sharpeners. I knew I could definitely do that so I sent an email and right away I heard back that a pencil sharpener was on its way to me. I felt like a kid in a candy store when the sharpener arrived, we pulled out all of the pencils we could find and started sharpening and WOW was I impressed!
Not only is this the quietest sharpener but it's the VERY best sharpener I've ever used. It kind of made me feel nostalgic and brought back memories of the pencil sharpeners that we used when I was in school.
All of this for only $24.99, I think that's a wonderful price for this quiet, precise sharpener. Since the owner of the company is an elementary school teacher he knows exactly what you go through on a daily basis sharpening pencils in the classroom and he has found a wonderful solution.
