Review on Value

The Prismacolor Premier Pencil Sharpener (1786520) is essentially the upgrade to the Prismacolor Scholar Colored Pencil Sharpener (1774266). Compare moving from a compact car to a luxury car. The compact does the job, but the luxury does the job and gives you a few nice to have options. It doesn’t come as a surprise that this sharpener is more expensive than its counterpart. How much more? At $7.67 for one of these sharpeners, it’s $1.62 more (~27%). What do you get for this price increase? The Prismacolor Premier Pencil Sharpener has two different slots, allowing the user to choose between a longer or shorter pencil point. This model also has a larger plastic compartment to hold pencil shavings, meaning fewer trips to the trash can.

Review on Quality

The Prismacolor Premier Pencil Sharpener was designed for Prismacolor Colored Pencils. If you have tartist quality colored pencils, and you want a bigger shaving compartment and multiple pencil point options; then you should take a look at this pencil sharpener. The sharpener is durable and the blades stay sharp for months.  This sharpener elongates the life of your pencils because it doesn’t chew up the pencil and it reduces breakage of pencil points. Amazon reviewers really like this sharpener, giving it 4.3 out of 5 stars with over 1,200 reviews.

Note: When you empty your shaving compartment, do not attempt to pull the top of the sharpener to open/empty the plastic shaving compartment. You’ll risk breaking the lid. Instead, hold the bottom of the pencil sharpener securely and use your thumb to push up where the plastic shaving compartment joins with the head of the sharpener – use both thumbs if you have to! After you empty your shaving compartment, carefully snap the two ends back together. It’ll be easier the second time around.
