School pencil cases are nothing without portable handheld pencil sharpeners. The Bostitch Twist-n-Sharp line caters to kids and their sharpening needs both inside and outside of the classroom. Their mini, compact design allows them to travel on the go in any backpack or bag, coming in three bright colors for a fun, personal touch.

Choose between two different types of handheld sharpeners: the original Twist-n-Sharp or the Twist-n-Sharp Duo with two holes.

With an adjustable knob for either sharp or blunt pencil tip preferences, Bostitch handheld sharpers are not limited to simply sharpening standard lead pencils, but also welcome colored pencils for all coloring needs.

Bostitch Twist-n-Sharp pencil sharpeners are as easy as twist and sharp, with a clean shavings tray adding to the convenience and portability. It’s important that these travel pencil sharpeners are simple enough for kids to use anytime and anywhere. With our legendary and specially designed handheld pencil sharpeners, now there’s no reason to fear broken tips!

Known as the original Bostitch Twist-n-Sharp pencil sharpener, this unit is compact and colorful to successfully fit into any bag, drawer, or pencil case. It’s also great for classroom environments and craft use at home!

  • Ratchet Mechanism – Save time and wrist work with the ratchet mechanism. Offering fast and easier sharpening without having to let go of the pencil, it requires you to simply twist the sharpener back and forth to achieve the perfect pencil tip.
  • Tip Saver™ Technology - Preventing you from wasting time, energy and pencil lead, the Tip Saver™ Technology is also a lifesaver.

Simply take advantage of the adjustable knob on the front of the sharpener.
