by Elsa Stringer

Right we are witnessing a big change in the way offices, schools and homes do work. All the physical objects we use to get work done are slowly but surely going digital. But we still have a need for stationery object, pencils in this case.

Well not pencils per se, we’re talking about pencil sharpeners. Something that’s used as a much faster alternative to their normal every day sharpeners. Pencil sharpeners are a big part of every stationery kit and who’s to say they couldn’t do with an upgrade? So let’s look at what you could go for, there’s a lot to choose from.


1. X-ACTO School Pro 1670 Electric Pencil Sharpener

This pencil sharpener was made for the classroom. It uses smart technology in order to perform in a reliable and safe way. It’s very durable and even comes with a 10 year warranty. That’s something that has to put your mind at ease, but honestly in 10 years pencil sharpeners might be out of use completely.


As far as the build goes, there is a flyaway helical cutter that will sharpen a pencil to a rounded tip and not as sharp as a needle. It has an electric motor which gives it power and most importantly it is very quiet.

2. OfficePro Electric Pencil Sharpener

Wherever you decide to use it, be it a classroom, an office or your home you are going to be satisfied with the experience. It has a stainless steel helical blade which works together with an auto-stop mechanism which generates a perfect point every time.

Another thing the mechanism offers is preventing any danger that comes from clumsy fingers which are often the case in the classroom. What gives power to this machine are 4 AA batteries, which come with the case, unlike most other pencil sharpeners.

3. TripWorthy Electric Pencil Sharpener

Even if a pencil sharpener is effective, without proper ergonomics those all go to waste. It has to be user-friendly and compact in order to be a popular buy in the market.
