    I am a substitute teacher and have used just about every pencil sharpener out there. My boys' school installed these and I've never seen anything like it. The Ranger eats through pencil lead like it's made of butter and leaves a smooth sharp point. Pencils are horribly made these days and I often have to throw out 25% of them because they sharpen on an angle and you can't get both lead AND a sharp point. With the Ranger I hardly ever have problems being able to get both. It's an expensive model and a bit blister forming if you're doing 200 pencils in a day since it's manual but I am in awe of its sharpening power.

    Not recommended especially in schools

    This reflects usage in a 2nd and 3rd Grade public school classroom. The grip on the handle that turns the sharpener is too small and causes sore fingers. We sharpen Ticonderoga Laddie HB2 pencils and it constantly breaks the lead, forcing us to sharpen and sharpen and sharpen. We often stop sharpening because it is whittling down the pencil too much. Not recommended unless you have the patience and perhaps a touch to prevent pencil leads from breaking. Unfortunately the school invested in this model. It is new and sadly lacking in practicality.

    Comments about Boston® Ranger® #55 Pencil Sharpener:

    I have very bad arthritis in my hands, and it is not only hard, but painful, to hold one of those little plastic ones and hold the pencil and turn it a billion times. This one is so much better, especially after someone screwed it to my desk for me. That's the only con. Plus, it has like 9 hole sizes ! And I've always loved that classic style. This I would definitely recommend to everyone, but especially to people that have hands like mine.

        Comments about Boston® Ranger® #55 Pencil Sharpener:

        We purchase this sharpener for the 3rd grade classroom that my husband and I volunteer in. It has gotten a lot of use in the few weeks that it has been in the classroom. It works extremely well. It is very easy for the kids to use and sharpens all of their pencils to a nice point. It is heavy duty and seems to be built to last.

        Worth the cost!

        By Classroom supply shopper

        from Lansdale, PA

        • Glides Smoothly

        Cons

          Best Uses

            Comments about Boston® Ranger® #55 Pencil Sharpener:

            This is the ONLY sharpener we've found that endures multiple pencil sharpenings in the classroom. We've tried the cheaper brands, and they break or don't sharpen properly the first month of school. This brand is totally worth the extra cost!

            A Sharpener That Will Last

            By Teacher in Alabama

            from Alabama

            About Me Value Oriented

            Pros

            • Durable
            • Heavy-duty

            Cons

              Best Uses

                Comments about Boston® Ranger® #55 Pencil Sharpener:

                After going through two classroom pencil sharpeners in a year, I knew I needed a really durable one. This sharpener fits the bill. Works well and appears to be able to handle the demands of heavy use.
