The best pencils ever Sep 21, 2011
I could not be happier. The pencils come in a wonderful range of tones and even metallic. They are beautifully coloured on paper, even with gentle strokes the colour is dense, not patchy like with other brands. They blend really well, and I have not encountered that waxy buildup that appears with others. They sharpen well, they appear to use a much finer timber than other brands, There is not the tedious waste of re-sharpening from split timber and broken leads. They are truly quality pencils.
I have absolutely nothing negative to say about them, they are truly divine.

The best colored pencils on the planet Apr 06, 2013
Way better than prismacolor! There is no wax bloom with these. Just pure happy creamy color (not quiet as soft as prismacolor - they are medium soft). Yes, they are expensive, but you get what you pay for; they are worth it!
They sharpen to a nice sharp point for details and also blend wonderfully. Each pencil is rated for lightfastness. I dropped one and it did not shatter on the inside (unlike other colored pencils)!

Wonderful Sep 09, 2012
These pencils are absolutely wonderful to work with they have their light fastness rating on each pencil and glide across the paper. I recommend them to anyone wanting professional level colored pencils.

I decided to get back into colored pencil drawings after about a 20 year hiatus (I draw everyday of my life, just not colored pencil). The quality of these pencils can't be beat. I upgraded from Prismacolor and these are a drastic improvement. The colors are much more intense and they erase very well, whereas the Prismas did not.
Don't let people tell you that the brand name doesn't matter. Once you go Faber-Castell, you'll never go back. The high quality is blatantly obvious once you start using them.
I bought the 120 count set. I don't know if I'll ever use them all, but they've already paid for themselves so no regrets.
