Welcome to dickblick
These large diameter pencils have very fine, smooth leads that are rich in pigment. The presence of abrasives provides excellent toning and stumping qualities.
Use Conté pencils to obtain a precise mark or line on a variety of papers. Pencils are pre-sharpened.

Good but not my favorite
Comments about Conté Conté Pastel Pencils:
Conte Pastel Pencils are a little harder than the Stabilo which I find softer and easier to draw with.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love These Pencils
from Lexington, KY
The only reason I didn't give these a 5 star rating is because they are a bit temperamental when it come to sharpening. Forget electric sharpeners. Do them by hand to get the point of choice. They are wonderful for drawing on canvases as well as for use in life drawing. These is also a great range of colors.
Conte pastel pencils

Great for coloring for photos
Conte is the best!
from South Carolina
Conte pastel pencils are the best for details on a finished pastel painting. Their abrasiveness is great for stumping. Being able to buy open stock is much appreciated!
Good product !
from Quebec, Canada
I bought some CONTÉ pastel pencils ( open set ) to try it. Its a great product, nice colors and textures. The wood is easy to sharpen with a razor because it is relatively soft. Having fun !

Used for colored pencil and pastel drawings. Very nice application of color.

I have been producing and selling my pastel sketches since the 1970's. Conte pastel pencils have a rich selection of colors which blend beautifully.

Love conte pencils
from Chapmansboro, Tn
As a pastel artist, I usually use a variety of soft pastels and then use pastel pencils for small details....a very important part of my paintings! I really like the conte pencils from Blick. They sharpen well and withstand a heavy hand, which is necessary from time to time. I've never been disappointed with anything I've ordered from Blick!
