This is just about the slickest pencil sharpener I've ever seen. Actually, it's three pencil sharpeners in one. No fooling! Here's a sharpener for regular pencils and one for wide pencils. Plus, there is a third sharpener (the yellow one) for regular width pencils where you want a sharp point, but not a long point, like those nasty chalk marking pencils that break all the time.
Unlike every other pencil sharpener I've ever seen this one not only catches the shavings, but keep them from falling out all over your sewing kit. Yup, it snaps closed. (And "open," too!)
Order with your friends to save shipping. I can get two comfortably in a flat rate priority box for $5.80 to anywhere in the US. But, if you let me take the sharpeners out of the blister pack, I can get 6 in the same box! Please write in the comment section of the order form if we can take the pencil sharpeners out of their blister packs.
