Rivals more expensive brands
from Pasadena, CA
Comments about Koh-I-Noor Woodless Colored Pencil Sets:
I bought these YEARS ago because they were some of the least expensive sets I found. I was very new to coloring and didn't really know how to use pencils. So I didn't really enjoy them and put them away. Fast forward many years later, with a bit of knowledge about method and papers, I decided to pull them out again, after becoming a Prismacolor person. WOW! I think I like these better than the Primas, and also as much as my (small) set of Caren D'Ache pencils (which are three times the price!) and Polychromos pencils. They lay down smoothly, layer beautifully, and have very little dust (they are oil based). They blend nicely with a dry paper stump, too. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because of the limited colors -- only 24. I'm not sure if the lead is the same as the Polycolor set (although their website describes them similarly), but if it is, I will definitely have to invest in those.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A very happy purchaser
By Connie from Idaho
from Greer, Idaho
I like the woodless colored pencils because of the way I like to shade my drawings. I chose some Ashleigh Nicole pencils, primarily because of the 36 color choice, over Koh-i-Noor, and I really like them. By happinstance, I bought a set of Derwent hard pastels and augmented them with a few Koh-i-Noor woodless colored pencils. I was so thrilled with the pastel/pencil combination I went back to the art store and completed the set of K-i-N's. Both types of pencil have excellent pigmentation and lay down smoothly. Both will layer over a blended base wash of pastels. Both brands blend beautifully. Both are very reasonably priced. My recommendation is to purchase a 36 set of Ashleigh Nicole and 24 set of K-i-N woodless for a set of approximately 53 distinct shades of pencils. Close similarities are in white, black, 2 shades of yellow, light green, pink, and ochre (A.N.)/brown (K-i-N). I am not certain of the light-fastness rating of either brand, but if I am doing something for viewing rather than sketching, I will use a fixative anyway.

Simply the Best
from Riondel, B.C.
I find these the best for coloured pencil painting. They have a nice weight to handle, and the colour blends well with others.

I love these pencils!
from Garrison NY
Elegant to handle, good colors, nice texture.
Love these pencils!
from Puget Sound, WA
First of all, I love that there is no wood. It is all color that you can sharpen to a very fine point or create a broader mark. I like that they work with a standard pencil sharpener. The Blick site had a good description and the shipping was quick. The price was a good value.
Only bought one to try, very impressed with colour, it's intensity and "finish" on paper. Will be back for more of these.

Wonderful sketching too.
By C. Brown
from Columbus, Ohio
I enjoy using these pencils for sketches and drawing. The marks don't smear away and the paper stays clean while your working. I use the browns and dk. blue and because they are priced under a dollar I can keep a supply of the colors I use. The heavier weight feels solid in your hand while you are making your marks.

Wonderful product finish, bright colors!
The colors are bright the finish is smooth and the colors blend nicely. Be extra careful about dropping them though, they break easily. Make sure to use an pencil extender to use broken ones completely. You don't want to lose any part of this pencil.
