Amazon.com Description

Keep your tools as sharp as your mind with the scholar sharpener, designed specifically for scholar colored pencils. The steel blade gently sharpens colored pencil cores to the desired point. It’s easy to use and easy to clean. See-through container makes it easy to see when you need to empty shavings.

Review on Value

You’re probably thinking, why would anyone pay $6.05 for one sharpener or $8.69 for two? You’ve been getting by with your $2.00 or less pencil sharpener just fine! Sure, you had to replace it every time you used it more than once, but come on, is it really worth coughing up this much more money for one, possibly two of these Prismacolor Scholar Colored Pencil Sharpeners? The simple answer is yes! High quality colored pencils are simply too expensive for low-quality sharpeners.  The last thing you want is for a pencil sharpener to chomp off a quarter of your premium pencils! Thankful, not only are most users of this sharpener happy with their purchase, but they report little to no lead breaking, pencils are evenly sharpened all around, with minimal shaving waste. 

Note: For the few users that report still having lead breaking problems or other sharpening disasters with this product, try holding the pencil still and gently turning the sharpener around the pencil. 

Review on Quality

The Prismacolor Scholar Colored Pencil Sharpener delivers on quality. This product gets your pencils super sharp without grinding too much of the pencil away. Plus, this pencil sharpener has a clear pencil shaving container that is easy to open, dump and snap back in place. As someone with petite hands, I can definitely appreciate the small size of the product but not everyone feels the same way. Some Amazon reviewers of the product felt the sharpener was too small and the shaving compartment needed more space to hold more pencil shavings. Overall, Amazon reviewers give this product an impressive 4.3 out of 5 stars with over 1,800 reviews.
