Anyone remember these? I’ve always been a sucker for school and office supplies, so when these came out I had to have one for my library desk. I believe I bought this pencil sharpener back in 1993 or 1994, and just today the crank handle finally started to loosen, so I don’t think I’ll be letting others use it any more.

Hard to believe this silly little gizmo kept has kept all of us easily-entertained students and school staff happily watching our pencils being chewed up for so many years. It’s a great sharpener, and I sure hate to retire it.

Sure wish they still made these! I’d buy a new one in a minute. 🙂
