Inventors and InventHelp Clients Develop Improved Pencil Sharpener (LAN-155)

Share Article

InventHelp, based in Pittsburgh and founded in 1984, is attempting to submit the Smart Sharpener to appropriate companies for their review.

"I am an educator, and I constantly have to deal with students getting up from their desks to sharpen pencils," said one of two inventors from Harrisburg, Pa. "We came up with this idea so that not as much class time would be wasted sharpening pencils."

They developed the Smart Sharpener to provide a quick, easy way to sharpen pencils of various sizes. The unit saves time and effort. The design reduces classroom distractions. It also prevents shavings from creating a mess. The sharpener attaches to any school or college desk. Additionally, it is producible in different colors and shapes.

The original design was submitted to the Lancaster office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 12-LAN-155, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368. Learn more about InventHelp's Invention Submission Services at
