Not bad, but I find it wasteful
Reviewed in the United States on December 27, 2019
It does function well, but compared to my Muji tabletop sharpener, this one just eats away the pencil like a ravenous monster. Not so good when I'm using very expensive artist quality pencils. I will say, it comes in handy when I have a bunch of brand new pencils to get them started on being sharpened, then finish off with the tabletop sharpener, which also happens to give nice sharp points and costs less. Also, this takes so many batteries (heavy!) so not as portable as the size would lead one to think. And its super loud! No good if you are using it late at night with a houseful of people trying to sleep, or in a lecture hall. Perhaps good for a classroom setting, where safety of little fingers & ease of use is a concern?
