iPoint Heavy Duty School Sharpener (16681) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Westcott iPoint Heavy Duty Sharpener great product Solid sharpener, absolutley works well on all pencils that I tried, from normal #2's to colored pencils. The thickness doesn't matter. What I noticed is that the pencils sharpened with a minimum of effort, in that I didn't need to push the pencil hard into the back of the sharpener. Merely holding the pencil lightly in the slot was all that was necessary, and the sharpener therefore only removed the minimum necesary to sharpen the pencil. The pencil lasts far longer this way. The receptacle for the pencil shaving is certainly large, after sharpening 10 pencils, i barely covered the floor of the pencil shaving receptacle. The Westcott iPoint Heavy Duty School Sharpener is certainly worth it, and lives up to its name.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! This has to be the best pencil sharpener. It sharpens any type of pencil with precision. I even used it on my colored pencils and did great. I love the automatic stop feature! I also loved that it has the different sizes. My son had primary pencils and it was hard to find a sharpener. I had to send a box to school for the teacher to sharpen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sharpener!! This sharpener is perfect for our Kindergarten class. It fits many size pencils, which is great for the larger Kindergarten sized pencils. It is quiet, not like the old noisy ones. The best part is that it automatically stops when the pencil is sharp! Gone are the days of students grinding their pencils into stubs in a single sharpening!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sharpener! As I opened this right from the beginning I could she how well constructed it is made. The 6 different sizes is a great feature. Very quiet to run and sharpens very evenly. There is not one unsharpened pencil in my house. Very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from powerhouse sharpener This is a very powerful sharpener, it takes seconds to get a sharp point and I expect it to last many years. A word of caution, if you let it your pencil will be eaten to a short stub. It literally takes seconds to get the point

Q & A

Once I emptied the shavings, it no longer works. What could be the issue?

Asked by: Granpunkin
It could be possible that some leftover shavings are preventing the door from closing properly which would prevent the machine from activating. If you need further assistance, please feel free to send an email to [email protected]

What kind of safety mechanism is used to keep the blades from turning on when the shavings bin is removed? My last sharpener had a piece of plastic sticking out of the back of the bin and it snapped off.

Asked by: Mr T
To assure the blades remain off while emptying the shavings bin, please unplug the sharpener.
