Comments about Faber-Castell Faber Castell 9000 Jumbo Pencils:
I've been using cheap graphite pencils since I was a kid, I can get it to look perfectly smooth and all graphite is light-fast. I never saw a reason to go for expensive graphite pencils until I tried these. The lay-down is exceptionally smooth and the 8B is very dark.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I really like the size of the pencils. They are easy to sharpen and the graphite doesn't break nor shatter easily.
Love the Jumbo
from Galena, IL
I struggled finding a good pencil for sketching until I tried the Faber-Castell 9000 pencils. The Jumbos are even better because the thicker barrel makes it more comfortable to hold. The graphite is smooth, no hard bits.

I own all of them. Great pencils. Smooth lead, nice feel to the wood. They fit in large holes of pencil sharpeners.
Faber Castell 9000 Jumbo Pencils
from Wilkes Barre, Pa
This drawing pencil is an excellent addition to the work, (very large drawings), I do in the studio. Very recently ran out of my pencil of choice for so many years, (Berol Alpha 245 Thick Black Lead Pencil), and, since they long ago were sold,...and that pencil ceased to be..I wasn't sure it could be replaced. This is very very close,....and I'm happy I was able to get it thru Dick Blick's on line store. Very pleased with the product and the seller.
excellent quality. Mainly used for drawing and shading.

Wow, I wanted to try this pencil for a while and finally bought it - what to say, awesome pencil. Perfect size for comfortable drawing and writing with ideal girth for a pencil so not to make your hand tired trying to hold skinny pencils. All pencils should be this size with same lead diameter. The lead does not require frequent sharpening too. 5 stars and more.
Great art and writing pencil!

The 9000 Jumbo pencil is one of those rare finds that really live up the reputation and history of the company that makes them, Faber-Castell. The lead core is very well made and the wood case and barrel are strong and offer a very solid feel, being made in Germany. The barrel is coated with a water-based varnish.As an avid pencil collector, I treasure these particular pencils and really enjoy them. Highly recommended.

I have almost every kind of pencil known to man and these are my favorite. Even better than the woodless pencils I thought were so great! Ya gotta try 'em!

Great general writing and drawing pencil
These are quality made in Germany wood graphite pencils. The cores are very good and comparable with Lyra or Kohinoor. The wood barrel is over-sized and will provide a comfortable grip if you're drawing for a long period of time. A great value and keeps with the Faber-Castell tradition of value and quality. Highly recommended.
