Solid value, great price for students
By Art Teacher

Comments about Blick Studio Drawing Pencils:
I have to purchase a large number of pencils in different hardness and value. This allows me to do that because of the price point. The quality is good, and the pencils last. The higher B numbered pencils wear down faster with sharpening, but that is expected.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Our art teacher wanted to make gifts for our 5th graders to encourage them to keep drawing. Blick had a great set of shading pencils at a very reasonable price. We had to make the sets ourselves, but given the incredibly fast shipping and price, that was no issue at all.
Two thumbs up
from Laredo Tx
These are great pencils for a great price I use them in both beginner and advanced classes to teach pencil drawing techniques and value!
from St. Paul, MN
I am beyond pleased by the shades of the pencils, and how well they sharpen. A great value. I strongly suggest these pencils!
This is the perfect sample pack for lead hardness
from Dallas. TX
This was a perfect sample pack for lead hardness.
A great deal for quality pencils. We use them in large classes, and find the class packs are great and have a nice variety.
Really like these!
from Kingman, AZ
These pencils are really nice, have different hardness in each pencil that make it easy to do different types of lines and shading. They are easy to sharpen and I haven't had any problems with the tips breaking. The case is nice too and closes tight.
from Newark, Del
Great selection of pencil hardness's cheap price and many selections of pencil assortments.
from Cleveland, TN
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.
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.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review. As you experiment with different brands of pencil, you'll discover that the hardness grades are not standardized, and the actual hardness of lead will vary by brand. We apologize if this is not what you were expecting. If you would ever like assistance in comparing different brands, we hope you'll feel welcome to reach out to our Product Information Team. Product Specialists are available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or email@example.com, and they're happy to help!
