You might think that buying a pencil sharpener is a simple task that takes minimal thought, but it turns out you could be missing out on many useful features without prior research.

With each type of environment there is a different focus for what is needed in a sharpener. It’s likely that a classroom sharpener needs to be colored pencil compatible and extra safe in its technology, whereas in an office, fewer features may be necessary and only motor quality is important.
