I bought this cover as a gift and it looks so fine I can´t wait to be able to give it :) The packaging is very elegant too.

Very good lead but too dark, and this is as far as the grades go in Uni! This matches Faber-Castell in H. I wish Uni made lead up to 6H.

I didn´t expect to like this case as much as I do. I wasn´t quite happy with the color selection, I wanted brights and pastels without white, as white would soon become dirty. So I thought this color choise was safe and a tad boring. But it´s actually brilliant! The grey inside of the case makes the colors of my pencils and erasers pop out, yet the grey is very light so it´s easy to see everything - black is not a very convenient color because it hides all the black stuff you have. Also, the inside is covered with plastic (vinyl?) that keeps all the usual smudges off, which is a huge thing for a graphite person like me. It´s very shiny and looks ever-lasting. I love it. The case opens very wide, especially if you don´t have a lot of stuff in the outside pocket. It holds a lot and is very sturdy. The zipper could run smoother but is fine. The outside pocket is ingenious, it´s such a perfect place for a large messy sandpaper that I use to sharpen my pencils and hate having among the pencils.I only wish the case had a strap! It´s not easy to find a separate strap that looks as stylish as Cubix cases! I took one from my Otomo case (the grey one, the hue is not a perfect match but looks good) but what if I didn´t have an Otomo case?! A strap is a must. So, a strap and more color choices, and Two Tone will get 5 stars. It´s the best pencil case I´ve ever had. Go buy one. Pop your often used favourite pens into the outside pocket and feel the wonderfulness.
If you´re into neutrals...

If you´re into neutrals and earth tones, ivory is the color for you. I expected a soft off-white as the case appears on my screen, but the case is actually darker, and, as I´m into pure colors, the first thing that comes to my mind looking at the case is a chain smoker´s old curtains. Well, this is a matter of personal taste, and you might find the hue elegantly neutral. The only real fault with this case is that if you keep a lot of wooden pencils or lead holders in the case, it will soon be dirty inside (capping pencils is too much fuss for me). Which means that Easy Open would actually be PERFECT if the inside was coated with plastic (like the inside of Cubix Two-Tone). The case opens like a dream, the zipper is high quality, and all that´s inside is really easy to access. The case holds its angular shape really well. A brilliant pencil case. I only wish the lining was plastic-coated and there were more colors available. For a pen person with a penchant for muddy colors this case is sure to be pure bliss.

As good as a hand crank sharpener can get. None of them give a real needle point like the best of electrical sharpeners, but for writing purposes the point Uni KH-20 gives is fantastic, even for drawing if you don´t require a perfect needle point. It´s nice that a pencil comes out of this unharmed, and the mechanism is durable, doesn´t stop doing its thing after some months like the cheapos. Doesn´t come with a table clamp!!! Needs one. Has a hole for it.

I have bought these as gifts and the feedback has been positive. One receiver said: The best eraser I´ve ever used, it leaves no trace of graphite.
Beautiful like no other eraser. I´d use these if it wasn´t for the perfect shape and size of Boxy.

I expected a flimsy thing but this ruler is actually very sturdy and functional. Bought it as a gift to a 10 year old who couldn´t fit in her pencil case a ruler long enough to draw margins in her notebooks at school. Works well, in almost daily use for months now.

I bought this as a gift to a 10 year old to be used instead of an ever unsharpened wooden pencil so that 1) her writing would be less messy 2) she would erase her errors. Both have happened, and the pencil is in daily use. The grip is comfortable, the eraser is LONG and the mechanism takes a lot of abuse without a whinge. Good thing that eraser refills are so easily available, too. Good price. The pencil feels a bit flimsy to an adult´s hand.

Good blackness (as black as Faber-Castell 5B or Mars Carbon 4B), doesn´t wear down as guickly as Mars Carbon, has all the attributes of a good lead. Buy the whole range.
