Love the feel of these
Comments about Cretacolor Ecologic Wooden Lead Holder:
I really like the feel of these in the hand. I haven't had them long enough to speak to sturdiness, but I enjoy drawing with them. I have some charcoal and different hardnesses of graphite and like the marks I can make with these.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Cretacolor Ecologic Wooden lead holder
from Richfield, MN 55423
For me these work really well. I have very large hands and the beefiness of these lead holders give me good control for fine detail and broad rough sketching. They are easy to mark so that knowing which lead is in which holder is pretty easy. Perhaps a bit more length might make broad sketching slightly easier but not a must. Balance is also nice in my hand.
Great Service, Fast Delivery

Perfect holder for graphite
By Artist Bill
from San Ramon, CA
I use this product to hold graphite for mixed media art. I have large hands, and it is easy to hold and manipulate. Construction is great: graphite doesn't slip nor break.

Proper weight, handling and feel
By Desi De Lu Lu
from Tucson, AZ
I love the feel of this lead holder. The wood is smooth and buttery, it is weighted properly so your hand doesn't tire. You can draw with it with your hand held in any drawing position. Nice balance, never feels like it is going to slip. I can change leads from graphite to charcoal quite easily. Only drawback is that since it is a light wood, graphite shows up on it and it can look dirty quite fast, but who cares? That only means you've been hard at work!
