I thought it was just me - and I know I must be crazy - but I sharpen the pencils myself - I have 1 good quality electric up too high for the kids to reach, and I sharpen as needed, that way the kids don't grind them to a nub, ruining both pencil and sharper - LR

I use Portfolio for "quickie" projects and Prismacolor for serious projects.though will just maintain the Prismacolors as the others get used up.but I would like feedback on the secondary issue in this discussion-pencil sharpeners! I've tried numerous electric, a fancy manual, an old manual, hand held...they all either break, quit working, tear up the pencils or disappear. What are all of you using that you would recommend?

I have a problem with Crayola colored pencils also. I have a very good electric pencil sharpener and it seems that their leads are often off center, making them impossible to sharpen. ugh! Who buys other sorts? I love the soft leads also.
