Vibrant and smooth laydown
Comments about Koh-I-Noor Woodless Colored Pencil Sets:
These are a lot of fun to use. The whole pencil is made out of pigment and binder, so I thought they'd be very fragile, but none of them have broken yet. It is easy to layer them, but blending isn't that great so you'll end up with pencil lines. They also leave small blobs of pigment as you color. Doing more layers and blending with solvent might achieve more of a paining-like drawing, but I haven't tried that with these. These feel like more of a hobby product than an artists' product. It seems I'm writing a lot of negatives, but they really are good for the price. The colors are much more vibrant, and layer much better than children's colored pencils. I reach for these when I don't want to spend a lot of time making a finished piece of art, but rather want to do quick sketches. They are not so expensive that you feel bad about wasting them on things that aren't meant to be framed up. It's fun to try out different ideas with these, and do the finished work with something better.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love these colored pencils
from San Diego, CA
Most colored pencils I've used that were cheaper than this were not really worth having. They seemed streaky, brittle, gritty, hard to use, never could get a smooth, consistent layer of color, and because of that I never really used colored pencils.But one day I happened across Koh-I-Noor pencils on sale, and I decided to try them out. Glad I did! These were the chocolate of pencils - they went on so smooth. Koh-I-Noor became my only brand of pencils. :)The colors are vivid, blending is a nice experience (!), and although colored pencils can never make perfectly consistent area of color (like a high-quality marker could) these are the best I've used, and they are just fine for me.One of the reasons they are so great to use is that being completely filled with lead, the area you are coloring can be huge. But because of this, they ARE fragile and will break with only being dropped a foot or two, but I have not had them arrive broken. I use these to color my own fantasy illustrations. I'm not into coloring books, but these pencils could be used with coloring books and be great.

Woodless Colored Pencils
from Sonora, Ca.
I'm not a professional artist, I draw. These pencils have the softest, nicest shades to them. I don't know why some are saying they break easily, if you treat them with care as they deserve to be treated they will not break.You will not go wrong with the woodless pencils, and they sharpen well in an electric sharpener.
The best woodless colored pencils out there.
from St. Petersburg, FL
They are nice and smooth, a real pleasure to use.
Good for frottage

awesome for marking up a conductors score!
Much better than I expected!
from Albuquerque, NM
The price for these colored pencils was so low that I did not expect much. I was pleasantly surprised! I have tried other colored pencils before and was never impressed. These mix well and are easy to use.I enjoy using them...they perform well beyond my expectations.
I would buy this product again!

Well i use this product for sketches mostly and some coloring sometimes
from Wheatland Ia
I Love the smooth and vibrant colors! I bought an extra set for my sister.
Can't beat them for the price
These are CHEAP but GREAT. Consider the value of paying only for the pigmented core of the pencil. The only negative is that you have to be a bit careful with them. Don't drop them onto a hard floor or they will break. One of mine broke and I fixed it with Super Glue, and I'll have to sharpen past the break when I get to it. But not a big deal and totally my fault. I love the shading, depth of color, and ability to layer these. I can get as many layers before wax bloom as I do with Prismacolor. Prismas are softer but have their own issues.
