In this post, I'm going to be reviewing the Koh-1-Noor graphite pencils that come in the wood casing.
For a large portion of the time I've been drawing, Koh-1-Noor and Proart were all I used, so I have a lpt of drawings that were made partially or entirely with these pencils.
Here are two of them.
These pencils come openstock, which is very important. They're inexpensive and not very scratchy. They also sharpen to a nice point.
What I think is a major con with these pencils is that 6b, 7b, and 8b, look virtually identical. Here they are in a row.
If three pencils have different numbers on their spine, yet you can't see a difference between them on paper, that's a major con in my opinion.
All in all, I think Koh-1-Noor are very good for their price range.
Here's a link to where you can buy these pencils yourself. It's an affiliate link, so that means if you buy through it, I get a portion of the price.
