Comments about Staedtler Lumograph Leads:
I love Staedtler leads, they are strong and the color is wonderful and just what an artist expects. This time they arrived in a flat container, which all in all is quite nice, however, I was used to purchasing them in round tubes that I preferred over the flat ones. These are the only leads I enjoy using and so I will continue to order them, I just wish they had them in the round tubes with each different lead numbers in the tubes. The tubes held twelve of each lead. I will continue to order from Dick Blick as they offer great prices.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fairly quick delivery.

Compared to drawing pencils, I prefer this lead option because I don't have to shave the woods! The only con is that the lead is a bit pricy and you have to buy the holder as well (1 for each hardness), but the product will last for a good amount!

The lead quality is excellent! And the product is so much easier to draw with compared to a regular drawing pencil or the 0.5 lead pencils. You don't have to sharpen the wood; simply sand down the edges with the sandpaper block or buy a lead sharpener. The only complaint I have is that the lead is a bit pricy. But the lead lasts last a while!!

Not much to say. They are Staedtler leads. Doesn't get much better than that. IMO.

Staedtler 2.0 Lead
from A Maine Island
I have been experimenting with different size mechanical pencils to draw with, but Staedtler leads no matter the size remain my favorite. I bought the 2.0 to try so I wouldn't have to worry about wood pencils getting shorter and shorter. Plus there are many good grades to chose from. Most important to me though is that I haven't run into any Staedtler lead that has the occasional little piece of grit like some leads do. These have always been very smooth and consistent.
Staedtler Mars Technico pencil
from Northern Michigan
This pencil and the sharpner are the best I have ever had. The point the sharpner makes is incredible. I love the feel of the pencil in my hand. Very balanced. If they were to do anything to improve this pencil, it would be to put a dial that would show which lead you are using. I tape the type lead I have in it, but the tape keeps falling off. It makes this nice looking designed pencil look tacky.

I generally use this product with Staedtler leads and their lead pointer. This is a great combination and works extremely well for everything from outlining to shading. I purchased several and use a different hardness of lead in each. This product just feels good in my hand, solid and agile at the same time. Pros:-Nicely balanced and made from quality materials.-Clamp grips leads tightly and securely.-Built in lead pointer (for emergencies) -Nice stippling on aluminum finger rest, easy to gripCons:-I wish there was a lead hardness indicator built into the holder somehow. As I use the same holders for different hardness leads It would be nice to have that option.
