Old school metal pencil sharpener?

Where can I find one?! The ones that hung on every class room wall in every school? I have looked at the office supply stores and teacher supply stores around here with no luck. Ive checked out target and walmart as well.

This is the kind we used at our school, and Amazon has them: Sanford Giant Pencil Sharpener.

We got ours out of an old government building, but as that's not an option for everyone, I would look online.

I've seen the ones that clamp onto desks at thrift stores/antique stores/flea markets.

Pencils are something I typically spend extra on for good quality. I really like the Ticonderoga pencils.
