I got the wonderful opportunity of trying out this lovely sharpener for free! It arrived in all of its glory yesterday and I couldn't wait to try it out. I opened it up and admired it!
It was fabulous!
I went to find my pencil stash which consisted of these two piles:
My amazing 9 packs of Ticonderoga pencils and 285 of those pencils that I have a love hate relationship with. You know those pencils that are so cute and all of the kiddos love, but NEVER sharpen well and become more of a hassle to have in the classroom? Yeah I had that many of those bad boys. Bringing my total of pencils to 501 pencils needing sharpened! It was time to get started.
First I had to figure out how to use it. Fortunately I had read some other reviews and had learned how to use it so it wasn't too difficult. I got busy sharpening and instantly fell in love. The points were amazingly sharp, it was super quick, and all of my pencils sharpened without a problem. Yes even those pencils that I have the love hate relationship with sharpened.
Now being as it is summer I didn't have any of my students to test it out so that will have to wait another month, but I am sure they will love it equally as much!
So are you wondering if I sharpened ALL 501 pencils? Yep, I sure did. I just couldn't stop until they all had that amazing point!
Look at all of those shavings!
Here they are all nice and sharpened! AHHHH what a beautiful sight!
And look at those points! Aren't they great? I have never seen pencils so sharp!
Now it's your turn! Go buy this sharpener! It is worth it! I will be purchasing another because it is so great!
And for surviving my post I have a freebie for you! It is great especially if you own this sharpener or plan to own this sharpener. I made my own how-to chart for using this sharpener. I am posting it to my TPT store and until Monday night it will be free! So grab it quick before I put a price on it! Enjoy!
