As the only sharpener we had previous to this was the razor-blade-in-a-box variety, this has already come in extremely handy in sharpening the kids' pencils up for school. About the only negative that I would have to say about it is that it puts a VERY sharp point on the pencils.

I bought this pencil sharpener after the Boston sharpener I had for over 20 years of steady service just stopped operating. I prefer the looks of the Hunt 1818 but is similar in size, shape, and operation to my old sharpener. The Hunt 1818 is an excellent value for general home and student use. I expect it to provide years of sharp pencil points.

It's ok... have to work at it it make it work....a little slow to respond, but it does work as you manipulate the pencil.

Not a great sharpener. Should have gone with the more expensive one.

This is my new favorite pencil sharpener. It's fast and does the job. Interestingly, it's not very loud, which I can appreciate since I live in a small apartment. Not too many things to say about a pencil sharpener, but I like this one.

I love it and would recommend it to anyone. It is simple to use and gives the sharpest point in very little time. I use it for watercolor pencils which I have had a hard time sharpening with a hand sharpener, now I am a happy camper.

The product was just what the seller said it was. It was an electric pencil sharpener that works good. It came in its original box and packaging.

I volunteer in my daughters classroom. They always have dull pencils because their pencil sharpeners are always broken. They have gone through 4 pencil sharpeners this year and one of mine. Never mind that they don't sharpen very well when they are working. I bought this pencil sharpener after reading the reviews because mine broke when I took it to her classroom. I couldn't be happier! This is really a heavy duty sharpener. I brought home about 400 pencils and colored pencils from her class. Over the weekend I sharpened every last one of them without any problems. It was the colored pencils that were the problem with the other sharpeners, but it was not a problem with this X-acto sharpener. I would recommend it highly. Happy sharpening!

Didn't even last 6 months in my middle school classroom. Not tough enough for them.

I have wanted one of these for years, but never bought one up until now. Overstock had the best price when comparing others. It suits our office needs and desk nicely.

This is perfect for home office use and for my little guy who still uses pencils for homework. Inexpensive and good quality.

My 6th graders go thru sharpeners very quickly. Have had this one for 6 months and still working although at times it eats the pencils.

I am a teacher in a rural area and when my pencil sharpener died I needed a replacement quickly. I ordered on Monday and it arrived on Tuesday at lunch time! I am hoping that it will be able to keep up with my students. I purchased the extended service plan just in case...

I have gone through 3 'office' grade pencil sharpeners before this one, each time spending at least $20. This is the one I should have started with. Sharpens super fast and a nice point. Easy to empty, doesn't make a mess.

I have purchased other pencil sharpeners and they were not a good product. They broke pretty quick. This product is working good.

Using it in a classroom with Jr high students. So far it is holding up and they have not succeeded in destroying it. Very fast sharpening.
Are you tired of dull pencils? Learn how to use a pencil sharpener. The most common types of pencil sharpeners are hand-held, hand-crank and electric sharpeners, as well as pocket knives.

Not only will the extra storage provide space for smaller toiletries and medicine, but it can also bring new life to an otherwise drab and overlooked area.

Using a hand saw is simple, but it takes a little muscle and a bit of technique to cut wood efficiently.

When you're looking at range hoods, the most significant choice is between a range hood vent that vents to the outside or an under cabinet range hood that simply pulls the air through a filter. With a few tools and some planning, you can install a range hood yourself.
