Bostitch Quietsharp Glow Electric Pencil Sharpener

The Bostitch Quietsharp Glow was an electric pencil sharpener released in 2012 and sold through 2015. It is no longer sold.

The Bostitch Quietsharp Glow was primarily sold through Amazon.com and it was aimed at classrooms and other high utilization environments where many pencils needs to be sharpened. It sold for about $100, but the price varied through its life.

The Quietsharp Glow product was recalled because of the possibility of electric shock. One person was reported injured by the sharpener.

The Bostitch brand is more generally associated with air compressors and other tools than it is with stationery accessories but the brand did (and still does) manufacture a number of electric pencil sharpeners. Some of these sharpeners are very popular, like the sub-$20 Bostitch Personal Electric Pencil Sharpener, which is a massive seller on Amazon and is a category leader in automatic pencil sharpeners despite the setback of the Quietsharp Glow.

The recall took place in 2015 and affected over 40,000 sharpeners which had been sold in the three years the product as available.
