scrappyhappymama Posted July 19, 2012 Share Posted July 19, 2012 I bought one of the Classroom Friendly Supplies pencil sharpeners that folks were raving about here. So far, I am not impressed. :confused: It works well enough for regular pencils, although I wish it didn't make them quite SO sharp. My boys don't like their pencils that sharp, so they tend to try to break off the tip a little before starting and then sometimes it gets broken completely so we have to resharpen. This I could deal with. But, the worst part is sharpening colored pencils. More than half the time during sharpening, the tip will break off in the blades and the pencil will not be sharpened at all. Then I have to take the entire sharpener apart and dislodge the jammed lead and put it all back together again. And even when it does sharpen a colored pencil, it often eats up half the pencil in the process. What am I doing wrong? I know these can't be so highly regarded with this kind of result.
