Best wooden pencil!! I am one of the few people out there that prefer a good wooden pencil over a mechanical one, but unfortunately I am also picky. I prefer a dark lead that is neither too soft or hard and this one is just that. It writes smooth and dark, but not too dark so you don't have difficulty erasing when necessary. Also, the refillable flat eraser is a nice plus.

I love these. The original blackwings were too soft for me, but these are exactly as hard as I want them and still as smooth as silk. I horde the erasers and move the partially used ones to the next pencil and keep the new ones hidden away until I need them. I love these.

I really wanted not to like these pencils because they are expensive, but they are totally worth the money. The core is very smooth and dark, but these don't hold a point too well. This kind of point retention is to be expected with a pencil this dark. I use them for writing. Sometimes I find myself pushing down even harder on these pencils because I love how dark and smooth writing with them can be. So very, very smooth.

I never thought a wooden pencil could be a luxury item until I tried these. They are very nicely balanced and they write so dark without pressing hard. They even come out nice and dark on shiny paper (think Field Notes or airline magazine crosswords) without excessive smudging. Plus they are smooth, smooth, smooth. I would buy another package in a heartbeat, despite the price. They are worth it.

If you're looking for a Blackwing pencil that's harder than the Blackwing but softer than the Blackwing 602 than the Pearl is the pencil for you. While I like Palomino's original pencil (the black one) for figure drawing because it's like a richer, darker, Ebony pencil the Pearl allows me the same softness but is also magically hard enough for day to day sketches and scribbles.

This pencil is beautiful to look at and has a wonderful finish. It sharpens well and maintains its point. Feels very luxurious in the hand and is a smooth writer with minimal smear. As usual, service and delivery was up to the high standards of Jet Pens!
