    I use these pencils for botanical illustration and portraits. Color is pure and lightfast and blends beautifully. A set like this lasts for years.

    The purchase of this set is well worth the money. These pencil leads feel smoother than cheaper brands but I wouldn't say butter. I bought multiply brands at the store and threw them out. Don't waste your money on multiple cheap sets but rather buy a set that will last forever. When one pencil wears out you can buy a new pencil instead of a whole set. Many brands don't offer single color purchases. The pigment is consistent and vibrant. Pigment does not smear and is waterproof to my test. The pencil leads are so strong you can apply a lot of pressure. The cedar wood is beautiful. I like the sturdy tin it doesn't flex when you pick it up and fall out of your hands. The tin layout and color organization they arrive in is all in color chart order. The shipping packaging was extremely secure and assured against any breakage. My only criticism is to the manufacture to consider darkening the color of the pencil numbers and color as I had to use a magnifier and reader glasses to read the print.
