Verified Purchase
This is not just a red pencil, or just another quite good red pencil. Good and very good red pencils are plenty and so easily available... but they do not manage to write a real red line or mark, but only reddish or very reddish at best.
THIS IS THE RED PENCIL. No reddish, but fully RED.
So whatever high praise I could write would fall very short: as far as I know, this RED remains unsurpassed.
Your money would be perfectly spent, not wasted at all.

I like to use red wooden pencils for marking in books as I read. I've tried so many different brands from Ticonderoga, Prismacolor, etc. The biggest problem I've found is that most red wooden pencils tend to have hard lead, and thus leave a very light - almost pink - marking when I write. Prismacolor coloring pencils have less of an issue with hardness, but the lead doesn't seem to be as sturdy (often breaking internally if dropped) and seems almost too soft for my purpose. These are by far the best I have used to date. The Mitsubishi blue/red wooden pencil on this website are very nice as well, but in the end I prefer these. If you're looking for a red wooden pencil to mark in books or similar - the Uni-ball NanoDia should serve you well at a good price.

As others have stated, these pencils are a very deep, pigmented red. Compared to other Japanese red pencils I have used (like the Mitsubishi vermilion or ones bought at Sanrio), however, these err on the cool side rather than the warm, which makes these unique. They go down as smooth as butter and are fun to use. The only downside is that they seem to wear down rather quickly, leading to more sharpening than other red pencils, so coming in packs of two is a plus.

Oh my gosh! These red pencils are incredible. I sharpener one as soon as the package arrived and I could not believe how rich and deep the red was. Previous reviews were right on target. I will definitely order another set with my next order just to have spares. Great pencils and the usual great service.

I like these a lot for highlighting books. Smooth lead is also nice for drawing. Sharpens easily. Would buy again.

This pencil is simply awesome. It is better than the regular Mitsubishi Red/Blue pencil. Here are the things I like

- Darker and deep Blood Red than the Mitsubishi Red/Blue pencil
- Has a waxy smooth texture
- The lead is many times stronger

As the other reviewers say, I cannot express how superb this pencil is, Just Buy It!
