I became interested in colored lead mechanical pencils ever since I figured out
that many artists like to sketch with a light blue or red pencil. After
obtaining that information, the search was on for a new sketching companion. If
you're looking for an inexpensive sketching tool that utilizes color, look no
I've used this mechanical pencil for over three years and it has yet to fail on
me! In fact, I'm sure that I've received well over my money's worth out of this
wonderful pencil. A REALLY great thing about using these pencils for sketching
is that they don't smudge nearly as much as regular graphite. Out of all the
colors I use from this set, this blue is surely one of my favorites due to it
being a nice shade of blue and not as light as the lighter blue.
But this pencil is not entirely perfect—shouldn't be expected since it is
inexpensive. The eraser on it is completely useless after erasing about five
things since the lead is not your ordinary graphite. If you're looking to use
this for sketching purposes, it's always a good decision to carry a bigger
eraser. The lead is also a bit more fragile than graphite. It's not BAD, it's
kinda like they took the inside of an actual colored pencil and made it into
tiny pieces of lead. If you're looking for more info on the lead, check out the
corresponding refill page.
Besides that, this is definitely a reliable tool for all of your color-sketch
