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.

A nice pencil makes all the difference!
Comments about Faber-Castell 9000 Pencils:
First Blick is the most affordable for these graphite pencils. I bought mine in open stock, which I appreciated, because I could choose which ones I really needed. This pencil renders smooth marks. The tip sharpens nicely and stays sharp for an extended amount of time. I can definitely tell that this is of exceptional quality. I bought a set of no bake brand on Amazon and they felt as if they had pebbles in them. These make smooth clean marks. I will only use this brand from now on.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

These are very nice but typical
By Botanist For Life
from Atlanta, Georgia
They are pretty comparable with other brands. Nothing really outstanding. I draw my subject before I paint, so I can note the typical values and such.
from Carlsbad, NM
From the pencils to the sharpener to the case, this whole set is a wonderful addition to my art toolbox. The pencils have a wonderful range in darkness / hardness and can produce some wonderful drawings. I especially like the larger pencils for their large area shading abilities.

from Independence, Oregon
The Faber-Castell Pencils are very responsive and sensitive to my hand and thus become an extension between the substrate and my mind.

Best pencils ever!
from Berwyn, PA
I've been wanting a good set of graphite pencils for years but kept putting off spending money. When I saw the anniversary set of these pencils, I just couldn't pass it up. As soon as I put lead to paper I knew these were the pencils I've been waiting for. Every time I put lead to paper, I get giddy because they feel so luxurious. I can work an area, layering without graphite shine, no snags from tiny bits of grit, and they hold a point for quite a long time, so these pencils will last much longer than others I've used. I am very pleased.
i love it
from rocklin, ca.
They are amazing faber castell always is, they make my drawing look so good. I would recommend for anyone who is into graphite work.
