I was searching for an alternative charcoal pencil or stick to derwent as I couldn't get on with them they kept breaking and wouldn't sharpen properly. Everyone said derwent were the best to buy I very much disagree with that statement. From now on I will use Winsor & Newton Willow Charcoal, ace product thank you :) Amanda Sullivan (Cambridge, United Kingdom) on 25 May 2012
