I love this sharpener. Upon opening the box I found the sharpener, which has two holes, one for this pencils and one for the thicker ones. There was also a pencil grip and a usb charging lead. I absolutely loved it when I opened up the battery hold and found a mini screwdriver and spare blades. I have never had an electric sharpener come with spare blades before! The sharpener works well. Time will tell whether it will last but at least I won't have to put up with blunt blades.
