I pushed the boat out on these after using Derwent for the most part. I've not had a single hard gritty bit in the lead at all, they are really smooth to use, have a gorgeous finish and the wood does seem to be high quality and sharpens well. John Williams (Holsworthy, United Kingdom) on 11 Mar 2012
