Best Pencil Ever
from Greensboro, NC
Comments about Tombow Mono Professional Drawing Pencils:
I often do quick sketches in preparation for my paintings, but recently fell in love with graphite and do a lot of finished works solely in graphite. My old pencils were not up to par and in trying to replace them kept finding inconsistencies with other brands. So, I thought I would try the Tombow pencils since the reviews were favorable. They do not disappoint. I purchased an HB as a trial and compared with the other brands I own. This pencil has a rich tone, not too soft/not too hard (I have some HB's that feel like H's compared to this), the leads sharpen beautifully and the graphite glides on the paper just right, either smooth or textured. I'll be buying more Tombow pencils.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good Drawing Pencils
I upgraded from using General's Kimberly pencils and these are great. The leads are very smooth and I don't get scratchy marks like I do with General's pencils.
A matter of personal preference

These pencils are worth a try, and bought by the dozen Blick's price is unbeatable. I happen to like Tombow pencils a lot--but others have strong preferences for other brands. To each his own, but if you settle on Tombow, Blick is a good place to buy them

I picked up a set of Tombow Mono Pencils because I was tired of using graphite pencils that required constant sharpening and were hard to work with closer details. These pencils have such a nice range of values and maintain a good point throughout use, and are great for creating even tones on paper. Plus, they're very nice looking!

I am finding I am becoming particular about my drawing pencils. These pencils have a smooth flow and hold a sharp point. They seem to last longer than other brands I have tried.
I would buy this product again and again
from Pleasanton, CA
These are the best pencils ever I used. Very good quality .I'm replacing all my old pencils with this product.
from Sarasota, FL
Creamy pencils - graphite goes on smoothly. For heavy handed artists you may want to use a harder pencil - so for HB use an H, for 2H use a 3H, etc. Very nice job.
Graphie Yields Easily
These are delightful pencils. The graphite yields easily to the paper without scratching the paper. I find that other pencils are one step harder. So to achieve the same HB effect form a Tombow pencil in other pencils, you would have to use a 2B in others whose HB looks more like an H or 2H. If you are very heavy handy and tend to get too dark in your drawings, but like a softer pencil, then use this pencil but go harder. So instead of HB use an H, etc. I recommend these pencils to all my students. Love them!

Smooth good drawing implement. Will buy more
Love these pencils!
These pencils are wonderful! They have nice darks and blend really well. The graphite is good quality. I haven't found any scratchy spots in the harder pencils. I use them with Strathmore 500 paper now and love the combination.
