Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sketching pencils Bought these for my 18yr old granddaughter who is a budding artist, she has done some amazing sketches, takes after her Nana and Great Grandpa. We share the love for drawing,spent time doing arts n crafts and we plan to go out sketching together very soon. I have had these myself and love them & such good quality so bought her some to use as sure she will love using them too when we go. Priceless times shared.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfectly usable pencils for the price. These pencils are very competitively priced, I would have given them 5 stars, but they tend to wear down slightly quicker than the brands I am used to, which just means I have to sharpen them more. They are considerably cheaper than the brand I have been using before though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent pencils for Beginner-Intermediate I usually sketch on a pad and draw mechical/non organic things with sharp lines and easy to shade surfaces which includes ships, clockwork, zeppelins e.g. The multiple grades of pencil help with shading and the lighter grades for discrete outlines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good set, The range of pencils from 5H to 6B enabled a wide range of line strengths on paper. If the hardest pencil was a 6H instead of 5H for a fainter sketch, this set would have been perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These sketching pencils are the best I’ve ever used They are easy to sketch with and have a lot of pigment to them when sketching they glide softly on the paper making it easier which is also great for beginners highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blending It goes from a 5H to a 6B which is great for creating a variety of tones. It blends really well and you can also layer with them. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pencils for drawing These pencils are great for sketching, the different shades are good for when you do shading, the darker ones blend easily and lift well with a soft eraser.
