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.

I call these the Cadillac of wooden pencils! They're smooth, glide over paper, and the lead is bold but doesn't smudge easily. I use one of these until it's the size of a crayon -- that's how much I value them. They're pricey but worth treating yourself!

This is such an awesome pencil!!! I draw a little and write a lot. The Pearl is smoother and softer than a generic No. 2 pencil, but versatile for drawing too. Even the erasers erase smoothly and cleanly with some rubbish, and they can be replaced with their own proprietary erasers. I ordered more erasers than I would probably need, but that's why I use pencils.

These are really nice to work with. I should note that some members of my household feel that the erasers wear out more quickly than they'd like, but my opinion is that it's a tradeoff between eraser substance and paper. The erasers are replaceable, after all.

Sure, they are great, but priced well above my current favorite pencil. I'm not sure John Steinbeck's claim that they glide along with less pressure is true, but just knowing that he liked them is great. I do like the hardness of the lead and the lovely pearlescent finish on the pencil. I carefully sharpen them so as not to waste them, and I doubt I will loan them out. It just feels fun to have a box of them. I guess I'm now a pencil snob!

This is a strong pencil; it even withstood my puppy chewing it! It writes easily and wells and the mark is dark enough to see easily.
