  Beautiful pencils. I've..., October 24, 2012

Beautiful pencils. I've had issues with the quality of other wood pencils before - either the lead is too fragile or the wood is too cheap and splinters or breaks. It holds a good tip, the lead won't break unless you put quite a bit of force on it, and while the lead can still smudge it won't ruin your paper like most B type pencils will. The case is actually pretty high quality and I can see myself using it long after the pencils have been whittled down to nubs.

I've found the 2bs might be a tad too soft for general sketching while being a little too hard for animation clean up, so you'll probably want to buy the variety pack first if you don't have a specific use in mind. However, despite these small issues, they've already replaced all the pencils (mechanical and wooden) in my pencil case. I would highly recommend that any hobbyist or professional artist should get a chance to try these out once.
