5 Stars4.9 / 5
Faber Castell 9000 Jumbo 8B Sketching Pencil is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly satisfying This pencil goes down really smooth. I've not worked with 8B pencils before, but this is a reputable brand, and I believe the price is worth it if you buy just the one. The size makes it extra comfortable to hold as well. My favourite thing about it is that it doesn't smudge when you use watercolour over it, making it an exellent base for for watercolour sketches as well as for line-art that looks softer than if you were to use fineliners or ink in another form. I feel invigorated and motivated to sketch when using it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I wanted to try one of these sketching pencils as an experiment. I chose the 8B because I love B pencils they are so much nicer to sketch with. This is a great little addition to my art supplies and will happily buy another.
