Welcome to dickblick
In the studio, office or school, Colorstripe is a colored pencil for every purpose. With an ergonomic triangular shape and a larger-than-usual rectangular lead that’s visible along the full length of one of the pencil’s three sides, Colorstripe’s unique design gives artists the ability to draw fine lines and cover large areas with ease.
The waterproof, breakproof lead is encased in solid-color black wood on two sides, and a thin, clear coat of lacquer safeguards the exposed edge until the pencil is sharpened.

I love these pencils.

Comments about Lyra Colorstripe Colored Pencils:
I had been using another brand of pencils that seemed fine. But I liked the design of these, and decided to try them. The first thing I noticed was that they were much easier on the hands than regular round pencils are. The triangular cross section causes much less stress on the hand, and the flat sides are comfortable against the fingers for a much longer time. The texture of the "lead" is smooth and glides on the paper with either light or heavy pressure. So far sharpening these pencils has resulted in no breakage, unlike the ones I was using before. Overall I am very happy with this product. I wish I had bought a larger set.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Original new look but poor functionality
By Neocaledonian the Art Supplies Scholar
from Naples, FL
The Lyra Colorstripe colored pencils get points for original design, but poor marks for their performance. Suitable for doodling and highlighting text with the convenience of the sharp tip and the large section of exposed colored lead on the side. Some of the pencils featured particularly brittle leads that left excessive debris on the work surface. Poor quality control was seen with the weak wooden casing of the silver pencil that shattered after just a couple of sharpenings. These defects on a newly released pencil product are not really conducive for a pleasant experience. Collectors might still want to add them to their collections for the novelty factor, but I would not recommend them for serious colored pencil users. Children might also appreciate them for their unique look and bright colors, but they are not really priced competitively against other kids colored pencils.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
