    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...Read complete review

    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.

    So far, so good!

    Comments about Boston® Ranger® #55 Pencil Sharpener:

    Could no longer stand the sound of an electric sharpener and didn't want to use electric power when we've got strong arms!

    And this product is doing wonderfully well in my homeschool house. It is being used by 8 kids and two adults. My dh attached it to a sturdy wall unit I use as bookcase and it is used at least almost every day.

    To make it even better, he attached it 'the wrong way' and the kids have to push backwards (away from themselves), rather than towards themselves and it still works great.

    It's old school design is really attractive and it can be cleaned out by my youngest (7 yr. old) without a problem.

    There is no equal.

    Comments about Boston® Ranger® #55 Pencil Sharpener:

    Short of parting ways with 200 bucks for the legendary Caran D'Arche 455/200 Sharpening Machine, this is as good as it gets. Dual cutters (not even the expensive electrics have dual cutters) make all the difference. Bolted this thing to a quarter-sawn oak post and it's like you're machining aluminum. Solid steel crank with a thick, knurled knob, the Ranger #55 points a perfect sharp point on seven different pencil diameters.

    The shavings bin swings free to accommodate wall mounting or you can bolt it to a desk or table top.

    Lovely in every respect, you''ll not find a better pencil sharpener on staples.com. Though you may find kids and adults alike raising their hands multiple times per day asking to sharpen their pencils. It's that good.

      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.
