Review for Classroom Friendly Supplies

Hey you all. I hope you all are enjoying your summer vacation.  So like I said in my previous post I am working on the order for next year.  As many of you it is hard to find one that does a great job.   So I googled “Worlds best pencil sharpener”  And this is what popped up So I clicked on the website and checked it out.  I contacted them, and they sent me one of their pencil sharpers to review.  
So first of all it is made of metal which is great there is a clear plastic tray which you can see all the shavings for easy clean up.   To sharpen a pencil you have to pull out the silver part and pinch the two black tabs and insert the pencil. You don’t even have to hold the pencil while sharping it.  Then you just turn the crank. While you are sharping it you will feel when your pencil has come to a great point.
This week I teaching summer school so it is not getting the full abuse like it would during the regular school year. 
One of the other summer school teachers need to sharpen pencil I introduce her to pencil sharpener.  After I showed her how to use it she sharpened about 20 pencils.  She thought it was great and their should be one in every classroom. 
On their website they say it is very quite when sharpening pencil.  I notices that it is a little loud when you first start sharping it then it get pretty quite after that.  I think this pencil sharpener will work great with older grades 3-5 with a little training on it.  I feel that grades k-2 will have a hard time and a lot more training on it to use it. 
There are few things that bother me about it.
1.        When teaching are I order different size of pencils a little bigger ones for the younger students. The Classroom Friendly pencil sharpener will not sharpen those pencil.  And I am not sure there is a way to fix this with their design.
2.       When you get a pencil sharpener from them it comes with a little clamp that can attach to any table.  But it comes lose.  I wish I would come with something that you can permanently attach it to a table or counter.
3.       Teaching art I sharpen any kinds of pencils all day along.  I wish they had a bigger disposal tray.
Beside those few things I think this is a great pencil sharpener and I would recommend this product to anyone.
