Yes, I realize what it says about my life when I get wildly excited about a really good pencil sharpener. That aside, anyone who sharpens pencils needs to know about this.
My poor husband has been subject to multiple forty-five minute rants about the difficulties caused by children + pencils. My word. I don’t know how pencils got to be such a source of contention, but we had issues every single day. I would hand them a pencil. They would grind it with extreme force into the pencil sharpener. It wouldn’t get sharp. They would grind more. Then they would come find me with the (unsharpened) nub of a brand-new pencil. Over and over and over. I got to practice making progress in sanctification over pencils. Sometimes I lost that battle.
Enter this pencil sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies.
You guys. It is amazing. Mounted on a shelf high above little pencil-grinding hands, it sharpens every pencil to a perfect point in just a few turns. I only have to sharpen their pencils once per day. I have yet to chunk a wasted nub of a pencil in the trash. I love this thing. Yes, I need a new hobby. But until I find the time for one, I’m going to enjoy my pencil sharpener.
