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.

Bought these as a gift for a girl who knows almost nothing about the world of fine writing instruments, so I was worried they would not have much of an impression on her. Boy, was I wrong. She tells me there is an obvious difference to her between these pencils any anything she's used before, and that she would never pick up a pencil of another kind again, so I would say the gift was a success.

I have tried these myself and they really are amazing for what they are. I am more of a mechanical pencil person myself (I use a Rotring RapidPro every day), but I could see why these are every wood pencil fan's gold standard.
