Info

Nitram produces its charcoal using a unique process that maintains the wood's cell structure which increases the charcoal's durability and helps prevent breakage. Nitram charcoal doesn't break like willow or vine do, and feels much less brittle.

Because of its solid strength, the charcoal can be sharpened to a fine point with the Nitram Sharpening Bloc. Also you produce less dust when working expressively. The charcoal allows for deep dark shades while still being easily erased for luminous light effects.

The Nitram Académie Fusains HB is a medium soft charcoal and excellent for drawing and sketching. Nitram HB's superior hold is perfect for homogenizing tones and retaining tonal detail.

Box contains 5 square charcoal stick.

Each stick is approximately 152mm long and 5mm wide.

I saw these charcoal sticks being used on YouTube and was impressed with the result the artist got. I like the square shape with the paper wrap keeps your finger cleaner than traditional sticks.. The length also gives nice control and pressure on the stick give good depth or lightness as required.

Great material to work with, perhaps a bit fragile for transport/deliveries, so whoever deals with deliveries should take great care in handling the material (charcoal).

Thought they were going to be harder than hoped for but they deliver a soft mark which smudges as needed and the square section is useful.

Love it and love the shape - much easier than taking sandpaper to willow sticks to obtain a flat surface.

Different in use from willow charcoal - hard, long lasting and dust free.

Interesting - different kind of charcoal - dust free and can be sharpened to a point

Nitram is my preference of choice simply because vine is so difficult to purchase here in the uk.

This charcoal is excellent. For many years only one grade of willow charcoal has been available in this country, which is very brittle and soft. This new medium grade charcoal is smooth and dense and quite a bit harder than the old standard charcoal, allowing easier control of tonal values.It is also slightly harder and greyer than the round, softer Nitram batons but this allows finer and more subtle marks to be made. It does not break easily and can be sharpened with a knife, meaning each stick lasts longer. Lovely stuff.

Requested on a Secret Santa list by a keen artist so must be good!

Review

Although this type of charcoal is indispensable in academic charcoal drawing, I am told the quality is not what it once was. It is common to get different grades of Nitram in one pack. Sometimes you loose a lot of the stick due to grittiness. It is still a great product, if a little expensive.
