Welcome to dickblick
These high quality graphite pencils glide smoothly over the paper. They are highly break-resistant and easy to erase. The entire length of the graphite pencil lead is bonded to the wood to help prevent breakage, especially when sharpening.
They're available from Staedtler in finely differentiated degrees from especially soft (8B) to extra hard (6H). Soft leads are best suited to sketching and blending. Harder pencils excel for their ability to hold sharp points, and are used for straight line and detail work.
Pencils are pre-sharpened.

Comments about Staedtler Lumograph Drawing and Sketching Pencils:
The Staedtler ars lumograph is arguably the best you can get. Now, this will vary from each artists, tombow is good, faber castle, Derwent. But beware. They all have their own formulation when it comes to grades of graphite. A Staedtler 6h is not as dark as a faber castle. So Thursday use proprietary recipes. What unlike about these and why it's all I use is the quality. As the core gets softer it gets thicker. This is fantastic because I sharpen with a razor to a 2" point and then use sandpaper for a needle point and I don't have to worry about the soft core breaking as easy. Also. 7b and up they have their own formulation. That makes the graphite almost as black as charcoal. Just compare the 8b to a faber castell 8b.But by all means stay as far away from the Dick Blick pencils as you can. They are trash Worst pencil I've ever used in my life.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

When the product has been 'used' up, which might take awhile
By Don't have one.
I like the 'range' of the hard & softness of the leads in these drawing pencils. It gives me the flexibility I need in pencils. Thank you.I originally bought these for my granddaughter who is in a university arts drawing class.....and decided I also wanted a set as an artist.....so purchased two sets.

I compare all brands of pencils.staedtler comes in 2nd.only one I like better is hi-uni which is hard for me to find and is more expensive.
from New Jersey
Very smooth. Trying these next to my Faber-Castell pencils and they aren't as soft side by side, but feel more smooth.

Smooth precise shading that's fun to use.
By C A Doodles
These pencils are great for all levels.
My new favorite pencils
from California foothills
The hard lead in these pencils allows for a good, sharp point that stays sharp. Great for detailed graphite work where a sharp point is necessary. They sharpen faster, you don't waste as much when sharpening so therefore, they last longer.
Non glare shading

Love the non-glare of the softer pencils when shading. Smooth graphite and easily blended
Always in love with this pencils
from Allen, TX
I purchased a few pencils (3B, 5B, 7B and 9B), I was quite surprised at the difference from the 8B (which I already had) to the 9B! 8B left me a bit unsatisfied, thanks to the shine it gives to my drawings, and yes, the color is near black, but as in working with charcoal with a shine. The difference I notice with 9B is that it's, of course, quite softer, covers greatly and treats paper much better than 8B without compromising depth. I'm already loving it. As far as the brand goes, I started using their red/black line back in my country, finding this blue line was a big big improvement. I really love Staedtler and enjoy using them all the time.
