These are great additions to your drawing supplies
By Jim F.
Comments about General's Sav-a-Point Kit:
I first bought these a few years ago to protect my Generals black/white charcoal pencils and I'm glad that I did. They've preserved the pencil points when you throw all the pencils back in your box/case/etc. and insure that you can actually use them when you need them. They also keep white pencils white, which is an added bonus. I highly recommend these if you travel any distance with your pencils, but as another reviewer mentioned, it would be great if we could buy the point protectors alone. If you have 20 pencils to protect, do we really (always) need the sharpeners too?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Handy, well thought of
from Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
It would be nice to be able to buy this product without the sharpener.Very useful and thoughtful product.I was pleasantly surprised when I first saw this and considered it immediately as a great idea.
from Grayslake, IL
I'm using this with the companion (bought separately at Dick Blick) workbook, and color is now making sense.

Love these! But...
Love these & the generals all art sharpeners BUT why can't we just get th pencils caps?? I would love to buy 50 of them for all my charcoal, graphite, tinted charcoal & pastel pencils. I already have about 15 of the sharpeners & don't need anymore for awhile. I will if I have to though because these caps are invaluable, especially if doing art outside/traveling

Great overlooked accessory
By Wedge Donovan
from Menlo Park, CA
These are hard to see what these are in the product photo. They are small translucent plastic cones that fit perfectly over the sharp end of a pencil. If you have ever seen an eyebrow pencil then you know what these are. Why use them? I like to carry a wood sketch pencil in my shirt pocket every day. The graphite comes off in my pocket and these little covers prevent it. Also when I travel I like bringing colored pencils with me in my suitcase. Colored pencils are expensive, some of them are really expensive and if you break off a few points the cost can ad up. Most of the colored pencils are a little to thick to slip right into the protector but if you be careful and you have to work them onto the It also comes with a little cheap red sharpener that works and if you misplace it or it dulls so what. They are pretty cheap so I think it makes sense to buy several packages. I keep a baggie full of them in my kitchen drawer so they are handy to grab when I am heading out.

A great addition to my on-the-go drawing
By Terri W.
from Dover, DE
I do a lot of drawing on the go. After placing these little caps on my pencils I have not had a single broken point! They will pay for themselves in no time at all.
