Comments about Blick Studio Drawing Pencils:
The pencil quality appears adequate.The Hardness Range is calibrated a bit harder, eg the Blick HB is similar to a Mars Staedtler or General H. This is not a criticism, just information for other artists.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Hardness doesn't match label
By Larry G
from San Francisco CA
The first thing I look for in a pencil is whether it sharpens well. This depends on the quality of both the wood and the lead. These pencils sharpen pretty well. Unfortunately, the hardness/softness wasn't as advertised. The F pencils I ordered drew more like a 2H, i.e., much harder. If you can figure out which pencil actually suits your needs, it's an OK pencil, way cheaper than the alternatives.
Great pencils and the price is right.
Quality pencils. The price is right.
I have used these these pencils every year and love them.
By Miss K

I require each of my students to use these pencils every year, and find it cheaper for me to buy them in bulk and have the students pay me.
Lowest cost and highest quality, thank you DB!

I ordered the full range of blicks drawing pencils and compared them to my faber castell 9000, tombow mono, caran d'ache graphite and my Derwent Graphic. They all smear to some degree when heavily applied, so I would not assume that buying any one brand will help you avoid that issue as I saw in another review. I did however notice that Dick Blick's pencils hold a sharp point with less tendancy to crumble than some of my other pencils. They had a great range of color from light grey to dark graphite close to black. I was able to achieve some very smooth shading, which I like to use on watercolor paper under washes of acrylic or watercolors. These pencils were 2-3 times cheaper than some of those other brands and ended up being my favorite.
Best buy in my opinion!

I am an artist, grew up in Boston and had always sworn by Utrecht till a friend turned my on to this site. I have always sworn by Staedtler pencils for my drawings on a whim, decided to try these....... Wish I did years ago! I'd have saved thousands! These have the same, if not better quality for half the cost. They sharpen great without splintering or the tips snapping. I prefer A long super thin tip for very fine detailed drawings and these DEFINITELY hold up to the challenge!
Good pencil for classroom use!

Pencils perform adequately and withstand student abuse pretty well.
Whoa! Very clean
By the conductor
Very pleased. Holds true to their grades. I love that the grade is imprinted on all sides of the pencil. They are smooth not grainy. I purchased alongside another brand and these hold true to their grades unlike the others.
As good as the more expensive brand!
from Dover, DE
I use these everyday in my drawings and love them! They lay down as smoothly as any other I have tried. (I have tried most pencils on the market.) The best part- Dick Blick has always wrapped them to prevent any internal breakage during shipping. Great prodyct. Great service.
Great product! And the shipping was way faster than said!
from Dallas Tx
Great product and it came way earlier than expected, they draw very nicely and are easy to use.
