pencil sharpener review

I just today made the startling discovery that I have six pencil sharpeners. That is too many. That means that they need to be reviewed and culled appropriately.

Make: Don’t know.

Model: Don’t know.

Reputation: Not sure. I just found it.

Thoughts: A handsome double sharpener. I just found it. Despite being new to me I already favour it for its extra functionality and clean tidy appearance. Echoes of the schoolroom.

Make: Maped

Model: Don’t know.

Reputation: Vain and lazy. Unwilling to perform.

Thoughts: I bought this for its looks, which proved to be a mistake because it’s a scumbag. It has a nice weight to it though.

Make: Maped

Model: Same as the other one 🙁

Reputation: I just found this lurking at the bottom of the pen box. It is filthier than its relative. Presumably it is willing to sacrifice its vanity for a lazier lifestyle.

Thoughts: I hate this pencil sharpener.

Make: Don’t know.

Model: Don’t know.

Reputation: Not sure. I just found it.

Thoughts: A dirty old sharpener with an interesting X shaped cross section. Nice and heavy. This one has moved from number 6 to number 5 since the “contenders” photo from above so try not to get confused. I am sorry about that. It is my fault.

IMG_4792Make: Don’t know.

Model: Don’t know.

Reputation: I have no idea. I can’t remember using a single pencil sharpener before except the one that I hate.

Thoughts: This one is really dirty. It has the aura of experience, like it knows what it’s doing. It has moved from number 5 to number 6 since the “contenders” photo above.

(Remember that this is the X shaped one. Don’t be confused because it changed places)

IMG_4800Blunt blade has shredded the wood pulp. Poor point. Too old to be any good. Needs to be retired in the bin.

IMG_4802Masterful point, it definitely knows what it’s doing. I shall keep this one to hand in case number 1 requires further training. This is the Mister Miyagi of sharpeners.
