Best Pencil Sharpener Ever

I don't know about you but I absolutely hate the sound of an electric pencil sharpener. I have tried limiting the kids use of the pencil sharpener, buying them little handheld pencil sharpeners, but nothing has totally eliminated the use of the electric one. Recently I stumbled upon this website:

I was excited and skeptical about whether the relatively inexpensive pencil sharpeners would work and be quiet enough not to interrupt the class.When I received the sharpener, I immediately opened it up to try it out. At the time I was teaching 75 kids a day which adds up to a lot of pencils. The sharpener is simple yet cute. The kids found it very easy to use and loved that it sharpened their pencil so quickly. I was amazed at how quiet it was. I am definitely going to purchase a few more so I can spread them out throughout the room. 

Here are a few pictures of the sharpener in action!

Here is a video to demonstrate how to use the sharpener. This video was uploaded by Troy the creator of the pencil sharpener.

The best part about this company is that it was started by a primary school teacher. I don't know about you but I tend to find that things invented/created by teachers tend to be excellent products.

If you are sick of getting headaches from those annoying electric sharpeners, then toss them out and head over to to purchase the BEST pencil sharpener ever!
