This Nitram Stylus Charcoal Holder Set with 4 Sticks contains a Nitram Stylus and four charcoal sticks in H, HB, B and 6mm Extra Soft. 4 colour coded end caps for the Stylus are also included to identify which charcoal is in the holder. The H, HB and B sticks have a square profile and the 6mm has a round profile.
Nitram Charcoal is the preferred charcoal of many professional artists and academies. The Nitram manufacturing method results in a durable charcoal with less dust, that is easy to erase and sharpen to a point. It is perfect for any artists looking for a cleaner charcoal that won’t crumble even when working in expressive strokes!
The stylus without charcoal measures approximately 13.8cm and has a comfortable weight in the hand. In this set is a selection of four leads which are suitable for all kinds of drawing - whether you’re working in the studio or outside. Charcoal can be easily swapped by unscrewing the collar and unclamping the stick.
A set of Nitram Assorted Box of 8 Stylus Charcoal Refills is also available.
good feel....none of that crumbly stuff goff normal (Okehampton, United Kingdom) on 16 Aug 2020
I like nitram charcoal, and I'm a huge fan of the sharpening paddle, but I absolutely do not understand the holder. It's huge! I understand drawing big from the shoulder, but this feels ridiculous.
If you always work big, maybe this will work for you, but it's definitely not for me.
The rest of the nitram products seem great. But I'd skip this and put up with messy fingers. Tristan Colgate-McFarlane (London, United Kingdom) on 29 Oct 2021
Comes with charcoal refills of different tones, doesn't wear out as fast as regular charcoal and the drawing looks clean, almost no dust and much better than charcoal pencils
The stylus has an ergonomic barrel, easy to grip, and no glitches placing in the refills
It has improved my drawings
includes a very pretty pin that says "drawn to my art" I have 2 and wear them every day Alexis Moore (Coral Gables, USA) on 10 Oct 2020
