Absolutely LOVE this Derwent Sharpener!
I bought this sharpener because I have carpal tunnel and I needed a reliable sharpener that provided no stress to my wrists. Also, because I found that every hand sharpener I had kept breaking the colored pencils and I needed something that wasn't just eating the $2 pencils.
I am extremely happy with the Derwent. My pencils are sharpened to a nice point and breakage is almost non-existent. It is very easy to open and empty the shavings. Battery use is very low. I have used this sharpener for two semesters now, and have only changed the batteries once. Another positive aspect is the portability; from my drawing table at home to my drawing class for college, is great.
Many of my classmates ask to use it while we are in class. My instructor has even given this sharpener positive comments and trials because he is looking for a good sharpener for himself.
I have not had to replace the blade yet, but probably will need to do so soon.
I definitely recommend this sharpener to everyone who is looking for a product they can depend on.
