Welcome to dickblick
The Castell 9000, a genuinely classic pencil, was launched by Count Alexander von Faber-Castell in 1905. Over the years, the 9000's quality and finely graduated range of hardness degrees have made it a favorite of artists and illustrators.
The Castell 9000 is the ideal pencil for every technical or artistic application, with break-resistant leads that are fully bonded to their casings.
Since 1905, this top quality pencil with superior black leads, made of very finely ground graphite and clay, has been a favorite among artists, as well as for precision, technical drafting.

Faber-Castel colored pencilsLike many artists I tried many different mediums. The variety of mediums I have worked with is endless; including clay, stain glass, watercolors, acrylics the list goes on and on.Somehow I always went back to graphite pencils and ink. These two mediums gave me the abilities to get in there and do details, I had a professor tell me I would paint a door knob even before I painted the door! Yup, he was right!Now my problem was, what if I wanted color? Straight out of luck! I went to Dick Blick website and discovered Faber-Castel colored pencils! Don't be cheap, get the largest combination of colors you can afford, believe me you will love the range of colors. Wow, amazing! I can get in there and detail as much as possible. The pencils work Great with a light touch and smoothed out with a Q-tip. You can blend out a combination of colors, and with a sharp point put in details. Awesome! I have been drawing nonstop, loved the Stonehenge colored paper as a perfect combination. Order them now, and get drawing! Margaret

Nice set of pencils
from Bossier LA
I want a set of pencils that included H3 and H5 as well as B's, Not as easy to find In a set as I thought. But the Fabre Castell 9000 Design set had them all in a 12 set. Good quality pencils. Came in a tin box and they say they shouldn't break so easy which is a plus for me as I drop them a lot. Blick online was one of the few places I could find them in stock and at a good price.

Done with the Fabre castell 9000 design set.
I have yet to find pencils better than these that aren't overpriced. These pencils are great for beginners and professionals.
Love my pencils

Faber-Castell 9000 pencils are flawless!
By Pam the cat lover
from Natchitoches, La. USA
Faber-Castell pencils rank right up there in quality with the best artist pencils for your hard earned buck. I own almost every artist pencil brand that has ever been made (I'm a pencil collector and user also). I have ran tests on all pencils I own and I did not find grit or impurities in these.This anniversary box of pencils contain large graphite pencils which I love. Those woodless pencils snap into and break when dropped and they are a headache I don't need. The jumbo pencils that come with this set are flawless and are heaven in my hands.I really can't find anything negative about this beautiful box of pencils, which come with a dual sharpener and an eraser. There are great if you are on the go or at home. Also, the box is beautiful and functional too. It's a bang for your buck, and would be an excellent gift as well.
Best price for valued
from Laurel County Ky
Graduation gift, was just what he wanted and a lot cheaper price. Will refer friends and family for future purchases.
Excellent product, excellent price!
I cannot obtain these pencils in any of the H values except online. Blick has an extensive inventory with great prices!
from Boynton Beach, Florida
Everything that came was wonderful, except the pad of paper that came "scrunched". One call to them and they replaced it, no questions asked! Great company, great support!
A nice pencil makes all the difference!
First Blick is the most affordable for these graphite pencils. I bought mine in open stock, which I appreciated, because I could choose which ones I really needed. This pencil renders smooth marks. The tip sharpens nicely and stays sharp for an extended amount of time. I can definitely tell that this is of exceptional quality. I bought a set of no bake brand on Amazon and they felt as if they had pebbles in them. These make smooth clean marks. I will only use this brand from now on.
