Sharp Pencils

Do you remember at school, all teachers had a large fixed pencil sharpener on their desks with a handle to operate? Teachers today still seem a little obsessed about sharp pencils - Fred is always asked to do his homework with one, and we are always mislaying the sharpener.

So, I bought this baby:
... a battery operated pencil sharpener by Derwent, which works an absolute treat, and will take pencils of all shapes and sizes {even ones with triangular barrels}.
I had such fun sharpening these, maybe I should have been a teacher!

PS. I have been trying to find a link to the brilliant Malcolm in the Middle episode "Clip Show 2" where Hal (the dad) puts off writing a will by sharpening his pencil for ages.
