Not worth the work
from Oahu, HI
This General's kneaded eraser tears apart about 80% of the time. It is annoying! If I use an edge or side then try folding it into itself so I can continue drawing and erasing, it tears at the fold and does not stretch. With each use, I have to really work the eraser to get it warm enough to become somewhat pliable. On the other hand, my Faber-Castell kneaded eraser is soft and elastic - even when it's cold (if you can get cold in Hawaii). The F-C easily lifts the graphite from my paper. I swiftly stretch out the side used, fold it over on itself and it's happy and ready to lift more graphite. I don't have to stop and make sure the graphic gets work into the eraser, nor do I have to struggle to reintegrate elasticity into my eraser. The General's eraser at times also crumbles into pieces. Most annoying. (FYI: They've both been used about the same amount.)The attached picture has General's eraser in the front compared to Faber-Castell's eraser in the back.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Works perfectly on many surfaces
I bought the eraser to use on Clearprint drafting vellum. It works perfectly on that and it also works to erase pencil lines and graphite paper lines on adhesive vinyl and other surfaces. Being able to mold it to any shape I want is a plus.

I'm using this product in an adult class and have used it in my work for many years. It's the best. Always clean and dependable. Works like a charm. I've even used it to remove marks on painted walls! it also has a side benefit of warming up my hands when I knead it before beginning my work. Eventually, dust and cat hair befall it, but it still works.
General's Kneaded Eraser
from Cumberland Maryland, USA
I use kneaded erasers in just about every medium I enjoy. Both Soft and Oil pastels. Graphite. Colored Pencil work. Lasts for a very long time. Just stretch and pull to clean and reuse. Terrific value. I make them available for all of the classes I teach.
Kneaded Erasers are the only Eraser to Use
I use Kneaded erasers for cleaning a variety of non-art items as well as on my drawings. I find that they are the best kind of eraser to use. These erasers were smaller than I expected but they do the job! I should've read the specs better.
Great Eraser to use with Charcoal
from York, PA
These erasers work really well with charcoal on newsprint and other papers. They are actually fun to use as a stress reliever as well - as you stretch and knead them to self-clean them. They last and last which makes them pretty economical as well.

I have been comparing different kneaded erasers. So far the best I've used are this one and the Prismscolor brand. They are about equal as far as I can tell. Doesn't seem to dry out or loose its elasticity quickly (I've been using it a couple of weeks).

I love kneaded erasers, they are the best and allow you to cover as small or larger surface area as you need. It can also double as a stress reliever!

I hate ball point pens and fountain pens are a bit awkward for everyday us so I use pencils for most everything,except writing a check. Erasers attached to pencils are useless and leave a dark smudge. I use General's eraser to erase all pencil entries cleanly. Since I do not live in an area where art supplies are readily available ordering from Blick is handy. The shipping costs always surprise me. In this case, much more than the actual product, but the convenience is worth every penney
