Best Pencil Sharpener - from #WIN {sponsored giveaway}

A Rup Life received a product for review purposes. All opinions are my own. This post may contain affiliate links.
We have gone through so many pencil sharpeners over the years.  Those little plastic ones, several battery operated, a plug-in electric and even a wall mounted traditional school sharpener.  Every one has failed us.  Until NOW! has what I consider to be the best pencil sharpener you can buy!  No need to wall mount it either!

  • A "must have" for every teacher.
  • A unique and practical teacher gift.
  • Old-school retro look.
  • Quiet sharpening eliminates classroom interruptions. 
  • Automatic stopping once the perfect point is formed. This prevents over-sharpening.
  • Works on standard sized pencils.
  • Clear plastic disposal tray for easy cleaning.
  • Easy to use (as young as 5 years of age.)
  • Sturdy metal frame (approximately 3"x 3"x 5")
  • Portable or mounts to a surface. Clamp included.
  • A true "green" pencil sharpener. Ideal for environmentally friendly schools and classrooms.
My Thoughts:

This sharpener is different than others I have used.  You have to pull the top piece out then insert your pencil.

Then you crank the handle and the sharpener does the rest.  We had to use the sharpener the other day and my 12 year old fought with me to get a chance to use it!  HA!  It really does take the yuck out of the chore of sharpening!

One of my lucky readers is going to win their own Sharpener from!


  1. Wow, looks like it would be super in my classroom!

  2. THis would solve so many problems in my 6th grade classroom!!

  3. Don't sell it unless you really need the money, because the value for old, electronic pencil sharpeners is only going to go up. If you have one that's worth something, see if you can get the antiques man to give you an appraisal certificate for it. the best pencil sharpener

  4. Awesome job really it's great article.
