Caran d'Ache has drawn on its expertise and explored the deepest graphite mines to search out the infinite color nuances of carbon. The result is the Graphite Line, an original concept dedicated to graphite that gives artists the opportunity to compose their own graphite range and explore all the shades of black. An integral component of the line is the Grafwood pencil.
This series of extra-fine graphite pencils contains 15 gradations (including 9B, the deepest black on the market), enabling artists to produce an infinite range of techniques and effects, uniform darkening of large surfaces, and regular and intense line drawing.
An easy-to-hold design offers optimal artistic control.

It includes one each of 9B, 7B, 5B, 3B, HB, and 2H, contained in a durable, hinged metal box. The box is light, easy to carry, and protects the pencils from damage — a practical set for all student and professional artists.

BEST PENCILS SO SOFT AND DRAW NICELY
By Julia The Baker
from Seminole Fl
Comments about Caran d'Ache Caran d’Ache Grafwood Pencils:
I have been using a lot of brands of pencils but when I found these I thought I found heaven, they are so soft and work well in what I am working on, they blend really good on canvas when I need to work on canvas for outlining my work in paintings or faces.. I have made many pieces or art work with silk items and I love how the feel of the pencil glides, you will see below some of my art work in Silk that I have used the pencil with even though the pencil has been painted over.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

These glide like butter and are true to their graduations it also helps that the outside matches the intensity of the lead. Highly recommend! Great great quality!

I've been looking for the darkest graphite pencil, and I have found the one. Grafwood 9B is the darkest you can get with graphite, sits on the paper really good.
Top quality. They are a little thinker than a normal pencil so does not fit into pencil sharpener as well. Great tone range to very black. The pencil tin has a pad that is used to protect the tips, this is not glued down and is difficult to keep from moving around.
Love that the exterior color of the pencils reflect the graphite=very convenient. The application is smooth and consistent.

The best pencil. I have every top brand, these are superior.
I use them for fine art. They are the smoothest of all the quality brands with a true, distinct range of value between each pencil that is much superior to any other brand. The casing is color coded with the color of the lead so its easy to pick out the pencil with just the value needed at any given moment. As the saying goes: you get what you pay for (and Blick has a great price).
Doesn't really get any better.....
from Chappaqua NY
Yes, they aren't the cheapest pencil but the difference is clear. I have come to use only Caran D'Ache as I do mostly portraits and nothing goes on as smoothly and consistently as do these pencils. almost buttery in the way they cover the paper. For me, spending money on my pencils is small compared to the time we spend with the drawing and one may as well go for the best.
Really Really Good
from Vero Beach, FL
I love these pens. I bought 2B, 6B, 9B. It is true what other people say, 9B is not really black BUT there is enough difference between 6B, 9B to have a full range of grey tones. They are soft and apply so easily. Much much better than Staedtler or Faber Castell. I clicked off "Solid Value" because you pay for what you get. They meet criteria of quality to cost what they do, so they are not overpriced, especially from Blick. I will still use other pens but when I work on "real" not "learning" drawings, these are my pens of choice until or unless I find something yet better.
Truth in advertising
from California foothills
These pencils DO have the deepest black! Haven't yet used them very often but, I did test out their claim to having the darkest black. Compared to five other brands of pencil that I own in 9B, these were indeed, the deepest darkest black on the market, And, It didn't take numerous overlaps to achieve that deepest black value. The other pencils in the set also cover surface area really well without lots of going over the same spot. I also really like the silver metal pencil case they came in. Makes for a nice, quality pencil set.

These are awesome graphite drawing pencils. They hold a good point and are very versatile. I have no complaints whatsoever and will continue to use them as my primary drawing pencils.
