These are my favorite pencils!

Comments about Dixon Ticonderoga No. 2 Soft Black Pencils:
I really like these pencils for my K-6 art classes. They sharpen well with little waste which is important when using community pencils in the classroom. I also like that they are black. Students know they belong in my room and will bring them back if they accidentally "walk out." I pay more for these pencils because the lead does not break out of the end when being sharpened by my little "supply people." If you teach, you know what I mean. I might be able to get them cheaper at back-to-school sales at local stores, but I feel the price is fair for the quality and appreciate receiving them with the rest of my Blick order.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love these pencils!
from North Texas
These are great pencils and highly recommended by drawing instructors. Nice soft lead and glides over the paper nicely.
Love these Pencils!
Honestly, the main reason I use the black Ticonderoga pencils is because none of the schools in our area use them and neither do my co workers. I always know if I see a pencil like this outside of my after school art class room that it need to come back to me.They are a great pencil. They draw nicely and erase well.
Dixon Ticonderoga No. 2 Soft Black Pencils
By The Last Luddite.
from Deepest Moab in Darkest Utah.
They are pencils. They write (in pencil) nicely and blackly. They are equipped with erasers (which erase)nicely as well. I am quite well pleased with 'em...
my favorite sketch pencil
I've used these pencils for sketching for years. They sharpen to a good point, are hard enough to make a nice line, and soft enough to do blending. Also the softness makes them very comfortable to sketch with. Sometime these pencils are hard to find - so glad DickBlick has them available. However they used to come with a yellow shaft so I wasn't sure they were the right pencils til I got them. Do love the new 'sexy' black color!

This is the best pencil on the market. It writes great, and erases well. There is only one better pencil, the regular Dixon Ticonderoga, because it actually erases somewhat neater. But the Black Soft No. 2 is a better sketching pencil.If you are shopping for a pencil, buy this!

The king of pencils...
from houston tx.
I use this pencil for writing and sketching. It writes just the right amount of darrk lines, strong and "Shmooth" lead, a fantastic everyday pencil with that little extra luxury look and feel. A handsom pencil. I challenge anyone to find a better value in it's category. Cons, no automatic model available. Why? Get this pencil.
