Review

I got these for quick sketches on the go and for preparatory drawings. The lightweight metal tin makes it convenient to transport them, without fear of the leads shattering. This set would also be a good choice for those who are less dexterous and find it hard to hold the regular 9000 pencils; the barrel is nice and chunky, so it allows for greater control. Faber Castell have been around since the 1700’s, so they must be the real deal, to have stood the test of time - that’s my thinking, anyway, and they have not disappointed. The pencils are sturdy and the reason I especially like the jumbo ones is because of the range of marks you can achieve. They can be used on the side of the lead to shade large areas, as well as being sharpened to a fine point. The 8B is my favourite; you can deposit a load of graphite on the paper and achieve really dark, elemental marks. The graphite can be smudged and blended with a paper stump or your finger or rubber, allowing you to create depth in your work. They are just really fun to use and I would recommend them for any sketcher.
