Comments about Derwent Pencil Extenders:
Have to get as much out of my prismacolor colored pencils as I can. So use these.

I bought this set of pencil extenders for my Derwent Colorsoft pencils hoping they might also work for my old PrismaColor. I guess I was hoping the wrong way. They do not fit either. No amount of twisting and shoving does the job. Either too big or too small. I tossed the packaging and mailing slip, so these well made but useless extenders go in the trash to join them in the landfill. Live and learn. Stupid me.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We apologize for the issues you had with these pencil extenders. The silver one works with the Coloursoft and the black one will work with Prismacolor — just remember to completely unscrew the metal collar before inserting the pencil. If we can be of further assistance, please give us a call at 1-800-933-2542 (8am-5:30pm CST M-F) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

So glad that somebody finally made a good pencil extender. I use this product to extend the life of some irreplaceable charcoal pencils. This is the first extender that would fit those pencils and hold them securely. I have purchased two of these. My only complaint is that I can't buy the larger extender by itself.
Great Product and service...!!!

I use colored pencils a lot and these will save me a ton of money as I can now use them all the way down to the nub . they fit all the different brands of pencils I have and they are made of all metal so I think they will last a long time.
Just what I wanted
By Donna C
from Austin, TX
I was wondering how I'd manage when my Derwent watercolor pencils got worn done. Problem solved now!
Feel good and work with all my pencils
Silver as-is for Albrecht Durer and Luminance, and with a ring of masking tape on the pencil for Polychromos. Black for Mars Lumograph (graphite) and Prismacolor. Maybe I have too many pencils, but with a few sets of these I'm covered.
Do not buy for Fabre Castell Polychromos pencils!
I bought these to hold my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. It will not hold them tight. No matter how securely I tighten the unit, the pencil still wiggles. That makes it worthless.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review. The Polychromos are a tight fit in the black extender, but they do fit and you won't have the wobble that you've found with the silver one. However, please know that if you feel these don't work as they should, we're happy to take care of it. Just call 1-800-723-2787, and our Customer Care Agents will be glad to help!
Pencils don't fit
from North Huntingdon,PA
I used this with coloursoft pencils and they didn't fit either one, plus it just damages the pencil. Maybe I don't know how to use it, but it's pretty much a waste of money.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that these extenders aren't working as you would like. The Coloursoft are a tight fit in the silver extender, but they will fit once you overcome the slight bulge at the end of the pencil. However, please know that if you feel these don't meet your needs, we're here to help. Just give us a call at 1-800-723-2787 to speak to a Customer Care Agent.
Great 2 pack pencil extenders
from Anchorage, AK
I love these as I use them for my drawing and colored pencils. Having the two sizes easily accommodates the different colored pencils by Derwent. I just wish that they made one that accommodates the Derwent charcoal pencils as they are too big for even the large pencil extender.
