Welcome to dickblick
The Castell 9000, a genuinely classic pencil, was launched by Count Alexander von Faber-Castell in 1905. Over the years, the 9000's quality and finely graduated range of hardness degrees have made it a favorite of artists and illustrators.
The Castell 9000 is the ideal pencil for every technical or artistic application, with break-resistant leads that are fully bonded to their casings.
Since 1905, this top quality pencil with superior black leads, made of very finely ground graphite and clay, has been a favorite among artists, as well as for precision, technical drafting.

Excellent drawing graphite
By Sarah Adkins SVFX
from Wichita Falls, TX
I use this for thumbnails, detailed drawings and sketches for hyper realistic drawing. There's no annoying sheen to it and the dark pencil is truly dark. I'm taking The Reality Drawing challenges and these pencils keep their points, lay down smooth, and erase very clean.
The best pencils I have found in 69 years. Fast service.

To write with 4B to 2B , marking books with softer.
By Out West
If you are just gathering your drawing pencils this is a great set to get you started. And if you are just needing a good selection to add to your pencils again this is a nice set. The pencils flow smoothly on the paper.

To the Gulag
By Alex Solzhenitsyn
Faber pencils are the finest writing utensils in the world. Faber started making pencils in 1660. An interesting fact about Faber Graphite Pencils is that the graphite was mined in Siberia shipped by sled to a river then floated to the Indian Ocean and then shipped around Africa to Belgium. During the Communist Revolution in Russia one could receive a prison sentence for possessing a "Western Luxury" Faber Graphite Pencil of from 5 to 10 years. Ironically he Soviet Union could not even produce a pencil with all the ubiquitous materials at their disposal. Protectionism,Socialism,Communism and Fascism all the same tree just at different stages of growth. All these Economic systems can only destroy and build nothing but Energy Serfdom, Universal Poverty and National Discontent. Faber is a glorious example of building a great product at a fair price and one will succeed in free and open markets.

Finest Pencils I Have Used
from Oswego, IL
I have tried many other brands of graphite pencils and the Faber Castells blow them all out of the water. Strong leads on even the softer end of the range. I have a full set of these and the Faber Castell 9000 Jumbos. Smooth lay down and they sharpen great. Highly, highly recommend!

Perfect carrying case
from Pepeekeo, Hawaii
This pencil set has a range of different pencils which gives my drawings a variety of light and dark lines and tones. The case they come in allows me to keep them all together without losing or misplacing them.
