The QuietSharp™ Glow provides the ultimate blend of performance, safety, and style for the classroom or studio. Its 6-size selector dial is TriWrite™ compatible and has been designed for easy manipulation by small hands. Once the pencil is inserted, the high performance, thermally protected QuietSharp™ motor delivers quiet stall-free operation and 70% faster* sharpening speeds. To extend pencil life and reduce classroom disturbing noise, the SharpStopTM system automatically shuts the sharpener down when sharpening is complete. Then the unique SharpGlow™ illumination will light, creating a soft blue glow around the dial to provide a visual indicator. Our patent pending XHC™ cutter cartridge technology provides 10X longer life** and features tool-free removal for fast and easy cleaning or replacement. The high volume shavings tray features our patented MagnaSafe™ tamper proof safety switch which shuts down the motor when the tray is removed. The unique curved shape and sleek brushed metal case offers class-leading style and classroom survivability. Also, antimicrobial protected this is a classroom pencil sharpener for the ages.
