They should presharpen so we don't get broken ones.
Comments about Prismacolor Verithin Pencils:
Adult coloring, I bought for vines,little leaves,animals,between lines etc. I does a great job for what I got them for. They came unsharpened andto my dismay I had 9 that broke below wood. The worse I was left with 3 -1/2" shorter,1 - 1", 2 - 1 1/2", the worst #746 1/2 - 3" left. The break was 1/8, to 1/16 below top of wood. It was very upsetting, I do know how I'm suppose to sharpen. I think they sell them unsharpened so they won't get stuck with the broken ones. People have said quality control has gone down since they moved to Mexico. I guess we are spoiled and used to good quality, hope this was just a quirk, I love my Prismacolors.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use a lot of different brands of colored pencils and enjoy a variety of choice in colors, textures and consistencies but for certain fine line detail only Verithin will work. I wish more colors were available.
Exactly what I needed
from Lompoc, Ca
Sometimes I need the hardness of the Prismacolor Verithin Pencils for real precision drawing to complement my Prismacolor colored pencils. I find that all the Prismacolor pencils are fantastic for my needs.

Always trust the quality of Verithin

As a colored pencil artist I use Verithins with my wax-based pencils to sharpen areas. Perfect match to Prismacolors.
Verithins are amazing

I'm on my second set of Verithins and I appreciate Blick having them on open stock because I need to replace some colors often. I enjoy intricate coloring and in my opinion, the kind I like would not be as successful without Verithins
We order these pencils for our shop use. Works well.

Shows up really well on the metal we use in our products.

I have the soft (B) Prismacolor colored pencils and the Watercolor pencils but there are times when I need the hardness of an H for real precision and establishing a basic sketch. These meet my needs. And that's what it's about for an artist: products that meet our needs, not us conforming out needs to the medium.

The verithin line is excellent for outlining, darker detailing, and fill in colors with acrylic projects and colored pencil projects. They stay sharpened longer and don't break as much as the softer colored pencils.
Two out of three ain't bad
The goldenrod colored pencil seemed to have weak "lead," as it took four tries to get it sharpened--it kept breaking off every quarter inch. Otherwise, they're good.
