World’s Best Purple Pencil Sharpener


Best Pencil Sharpener

Disclosure: I was provided a complimentary Purple Pencil Sharpener to thank me for sharing about the new color in the Classroom Friendly Supplies Pencil Sharpener lineup.

When I was a homeschooling mom, I always had the perfect excuse to buy school and office supplies. Colored pens? Get the multi-pack. Colored pencils? Only $1 a pack? Why not get 5. Washi tape? Cardstock? You name it, I could easily justify getting it. In the name of education! But the one thing I could never bring myself to buy was a decent pencil sharpener. Don’t get me wrong, I have plenty of pencil sharpeners. Most are cheapo $0.25 manual ones because the electric and battery powered ones never seem to work right. Not sure what it is about pencil sharpeners, but they’ve never shown me the love I think this basic device should.

My grandpa had one mounted in the garage and it was perfect. It was an Army-issued sharpener he had from the 1950s and I loved using it. It never broke the points. I didn’t eat my pencils. It just provided a sharp pencil in a few turns, every single time I used it. Several years ago the handle broke and while my Grandma tried to fix it, it never worked the same. And my love affair with pencil sharpeners took on new meaning. I was determined to find a pencil sharpener that would work every single time.

About 2 years ago I found the perfect pencil sharpener. Troy from Classroom Friendly Supplies had contacted me about his new pencil sharpener. As an elementary school teacher, Troy knows how important a sharp pencil is and got tired of pencils being wasted because the sharpeners never worked well. Unable to find a good, consistent sharpener, he did what any good enterprising entrepreneur would do and set out to make the world’s best pencil sharpener. And I’m here to tell you, I think he succeeded. And while I thought that before, now he’s come out with the new purple color and it truly is the best pencil sharpener on earth!

On October 26th, the Popular Purple Sharpener makes its debut. I was so excited when I was invited to share this news with you because I honestly believe everyone should have an awesome pencil sharpener, and for my fellow lovers of all things purple, our day has finally arrived! While Troy made these sharpeners for schools, and his fellow teachers, the fact is they’re perfect for homeschoolers, families who love to draw and use colored pencils, and everyone who loves to use a nice sharp pencil.

Besides always having a nice sharp point, I like that these sharpeners are quiet. It’s one of the reasons I’m not a fan of the electric or battery-powered sharpeners. They are so loud everything stops until it’s done. And even many manual sharpeners are really loud and disruptive. And let’s not even talk about the mess they usually make. But not this one. I’m probably too excited about these pencil sharpeners but I use mine all the time, have given them as gifts, and recommend them to anyone who’s willing to listen.

Because these sharpeners are a little different you’ll want to take a look at how exactly to use them. For about $25 you can have this great sharpener for yourself or as a gift. They come in 6 different colors to suit everyone’s preference. So, don’t wait. You know the people on your holiday list that would love one!

If you already have one, I’d love to know your thoughts.
