Buy An Automatic Pencil Sharpener

If you want to make the chore of keeping your pencils ready for use at all time, you should think about buying an automatic pencil sharpener. This will make the task of keeping your pencils sharp and ready for use as simple and clean cut as possible.

Whether you need to sharpen your drafting pencils or cosmetic make up pencils, you will find the right battery operated sharpener to suit your needs.

Here are just a few examples of what is available online at Amazon.

Panasonic Classic Electric Pencil Sharpener

This little automatic pencil sharpener has a lovely sleek design so it will look perfect on any table top. This is a good little machine that you can use in the office or at home.

The advantage of using an electric sharpener is that the steel piece that does the cutting will never need sharpening and because the machine is automatic, it will stop exactly when your pencil has been sharpened enough. It has an inbuilt sensor to be able to identify when enough wood has been shaved off.

The biggest advantage is that the auto-stop function will help to prevent pencil waste so whether it is a jumbo pencil, drafting pencils or pencils for kids, they will all last much longer than they would if you used a traditional manual pencil sharpener.

This sharpener has a datable receptacle. It is semi transparent so you can see when it gets full and needs to be emptied. The little suction pads on the bottom of the case means that it will not move while you are using it.

Panasonic Pinpoint Desktop Battery-Operated Pencil Sharpener

If you want to add a little bit of colour to your desk, you could buy this pretty and chic desktop battery operated pencil sharpener.

It is red and black in colour and the spherical shape makes it stand out from the crowd. To operate this pencil sharpener you need to purchase 4 AA batteries.

The cutting blade is constructed from heavy duty durable steel so your pencils will get sharp with very little effort.

If you are looking for a cute little stocking filling this is a great option for children or adults.

Z Pointe Automatic Cosmetic Pencil Sharpener

It isn’t just drafting pencils and colouring pencils that need to be sharpened. This is the perfect thing for women who face the problem of having to deal with blunt cosmetic pencils.

This smart little sharpener is not only fully functional, it also has a funky design so it can take pride of place on your dressing table or vanity table. When it is not in use it looks like a very modern ornamental piece.

This has a hand polished pyramid design and the receptacle can hold a large quantity of shavings before it needs to be emptied.

The blade mechanism is a little different for a soft cosmetic pencil than a traditional pencil because you do not want it to be too hard as it will simply break your precious make up pencils.
