Best colored pencils I have ever used
from NEW YORK
Comments about Koh-I-Noor Woodless Colored Pencil Sets:
I teach a coloring class and I use these at home and at the class. I showed my students and let them try them. They loved them as much as I do. One of the students went to Blick to buy because she liked them so much. They don't break when I sharpen them like regular colored pencils do even the expensive ones. I like how the color goes on the paper and how easy it is to blend.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good quality and value
from Longview, Wa
Purchased basic set to complement the Prismacolor pencils I already own. Great value given the amount of useful color, smooth application (similar to Prismacolor), and should extend the life of all my basic colors.
A New Addition to My Colored Pencil Tool Box
By Carrie L. Lewis
from Newton, Kansas
It's been quite a long time since I've had woodless colored pencils in my colored pencil box. I just didn't like the way they handled.But a reader of my blog mentioned using Koh-I-Nor Progresso Woodless pencils and I decided to give them a try. I'm glad I did!They're an excellent pencil. Color lay-down is smooth. They blend well and layer beautifully.BONUS: The packaging of the 24-pencil set is a treat and a delight! What a neat idea!

Big Fan of M. Graham Oils
I've been using M. Graham Oil paints exclusively for several years. They're ideal for classical glazing methods, but also work wonderfully for more direct painting methods. I whole-heartedly recommend them to any oil painter who wants to create luminous glazes.

These Kohinoor all wood colored pencils are my favorite for my adult coloring books. I've used some colors much faster than others, so I only needed to replace a few. Blick has the BEST price for 'open stock' so I ordered a couple of each of my most used colors. Order was well-packed. Order filling and shipping were fast, and I was glad to be able to use PayPal. Will certainly shop Blick first when I need art materials.

We all color here in our family because we have small children and we all color together and I love the wordless pencils. The are off limits to the really little ones but they will switch as they Get older. Thank you for such a great fun product

I like the Koh-I-Noor pencils and thought to try the woodless one. They are oil based I believe and are quite nice to color with. The pigment lays down very nicely

I gave these pencils the highest ratings in all categories even though I do have a few complaints. But overall they're such a wonderful product and value that I can't think of anything that competes even closely. Most of all I love the soft touch. After coloring with only these pencils for a while, it's real hard to go back to other pencils. (I need to apply twice as much pressure to get the same pigment on the paper.) But they are more fragile than other pencils. Two of mine (out of a set of 24) are broken. More importantly, I'm not completely happy with the color selection. I often need colors that are simply not there and blending/layering will only take you so far. I wish they offered a wider color selection, even if for a higher price. In particular, the choice of reds is very poor. There are many blues to choose from and certainly more than enough purples — but only one red. I've seen one of the pencils (#15) listed as red, but to me it's all purple. It may not seem like a big deal, but for someone favoring red palettes, I have to constantly reach for something else to get by. And I don't like it.

Being an illustrator, I spend thousands of dollars over the course of my work on art supplies. My favortie medium is colored pencils and while there are many great brands on the market, none compare to Progresso's woodless. The brands fashioned like a lead pencil tend to require frequent sharpening with the lead falling out consisently. You do not have to worry about this issue with the woodless styles. If you are tired of frequent sharpening and messy strokes from poor application, this is the brand to try!
from Waterford, PA
Holding it feels so comfortable. The pigment is vibrant and the lay down is so very smooth!
