Must Buy For Sharpening Your Pencils
from Rome, GA
Comments about Excel Single-Edge Razor Blades:
I am currently attending Watts Atelier through the online program and purchased these as single edge razor blades are a required supply for the course. I have used X-Acto knives in the past to sharpen my pencils but in my opinion using single edge razor blades for the task produces a much better and consistent result. I am using these to mainly sharpen Conte 1710 pencils but have used them on a variety of other pencils and they performed great. The blades are very sharp out of the box and remain that way for quite some time. I did purchase these from my local Blick store, they only had the small package available, but the price for the package of 100 online seems to be the best deal. If you have never tried sharpening your pencil with this method I highly recommend it. It allows you to get a nice long taper out of the core of the pencil so you can use the large side to create great tonal marks as well as a variety of marks that beat a "normal sharpened" pencil anyday.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

More for a Great Price
By Ms. Delanty
from Fountain Valley
As an art teacher, I always need x-acto knives. This package is cheap and comes with a sufficient amount. I will never have to borrow from the janitor again!
I use these for my collage work and mixed media paintings. The also work great as a scraper to get the air bubbles out when working with paste & papers.

sharpen pencils like no other tool, easy
I first heard about single-edge razor blades from Painter Michael Britton on his Workshops DVDS. As he seemed to demonstrate the use of those blades to sharpen pencils so easily, I wanted to try for myself. So I was happy to find Blick Art materials through his website. I wondered if it was silly to order blades from America when I live in Australia and can find similar blades at the next hardware shop. Not so, nothing compares to Excel Single-Edge Razor Blades and I would order them at the other end of the world if that was where I should find them. I highly recommend them to any artist who wants to use razor sharp pencils.
