Does what is says on the pack
5 Dec 2013
By JLPS
, Fife
"10 decent quality pencils.
Easily sharpened with a sharp knife.
Bright red so easily found
or grab another (lost one will turn up eventually)
If you are using a school style pencil
that has a point that snaps of again and again
This is a good alternative.
you only need to sharpen when dull, not broken"

"I was fed up using 'normal' pencils as they kept breaking. These are perfect for marking wood, stone, brick, etc before cutting."

They are pencils
3 Apr 2012
By Colenso
, Chichester
"Ok, how much can you write about pencils? They have a good sturdy body so won't snap in the tool box. The lead is good and thick so the end won't constantly break and it is easy enough to sharpen with a blade. I did try to mark tiles with them, but obviously the lead is not soft enough to do that but that is not the products fault."

"These pencils are well worth the money.
They are a little more expensive than other options but the lead is strong and generous compared to others and the overall quality out strips the competitors.

decent pencils
7 Sep 2012
By scottyboy

"These pencils are generally a good all rounder, they are soft enough for marking timber clearly, they aren't too tough to sharpen however they are a bit pricey compared to getting a pack of 100 pencils at a stationary shop."

"I don't know whether I got a duff batch or some that had been dropped or crushed the leads break frequently and you end up with only 50% of the pencil being of any use !"

Worst value ever!!
3 Feb 2014
By Kenny1
, Cornwall
"Bought a pack of these and every pencil was made up of broken bits that would fly out every time I sharpened one.
Thinking I'd bought a bad batch, I bought another pack about a month later, and had the same problem. Cut two of the pencils open, and they were made up of at least 10 or 12 bits of graphite. As a Carpenter, I get through a few pencils, but I'll stick to my Blackedge pencils from now on.

Its only a pencil

"Well, like someone else posted, "I must have had a bad batch" how annoying, sharpen snap sharpen snap, half way through the pencil all good, snap.
This is the 2nd time this week I have bought BASIC consumables from screwfix and been disappointed.
If I buy pencils I dont want them to break as I sharpen them, If I buy tape I want it to be sticky.
If you cant get the basics right what does it say about your other goods. Its only a pencil......."
