I just bought this product.. again...
from Broadway, NC
I bought this product for use in a charcoal life drawing class. The charcoal is easy to work with, and is just a little oily which allows beautiful blending results. My instructor used it and was raving to the class at how nice the product is. I am sure he will be purchasing some soon.

An awesome product at an amazing price!
I love using these.
from Emmetsburg Iowa
50 pieces for less than $10? I'll take it. It's been a while since I've used Charcoal, and I have to say these really got me back in to it.
"The only willow to use"

Love using their willow. Great deal and great quality. I highly recommend this for your class needs. Their pressed charcoal is just the right firmness and easy to hold in your hand.

This is not Yarka Charcoal. It no longer carries the Yarka label, is made in China (not Russia as was the previous Yarka) and is a different density, color, length and diameter than the previous Yarka. I expected the change in length based on the product description, but did not expect an entirely different product than I am used to. I don't know how Dick Blick manages to sell this product under the same name as what was my favorite charcoal without any disclosure.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This product is very useful in drawings and sketches. The charcoal is smooth which is nice when adding value. I love the different thicknesses of this charcoal and the box is so cute!
