The innovative ratchet mechanism in Sonic's Ratchetta pencil sharpener makes hand-sharpening your pencils quick and easy. You no longer need to repeatedly let go and re-grip the pencil while sharpening! Simply rotating the pencil back and forth does the job. The mechanism is similar to that of a ratcheting screwdriver. The Ratchetta also has a compartment for shavings, and a lid for covering the pencil hole when not in use.
By turning the dial on the Point Adjustment sharpener, you can choose between two sharpness settings: fine point and broad point. The sharp point is perfect for precise writing and drawing, while the dull point, especially great for colored pencils, is ideal for creating softer lines.
