Without causing controversy; these are quite easily the best pencils in existance. I would highly recommend any Derwent product and Faber castell for that matter. If you are an art student or interested in art I really cannot stress how brilliant you will find these pencils! Can I provide a tip; when shading with these pencils use a cotton bud, it blends so much easier which is true for most pencils. I know its expensive, but you won't regret it. I will only buy Derwent products now to be completely honest.

I know many people think "It's a pencil, so?" but these aren't mere pencils. The graphite contained in these pencils is exquisite - the different grades give different intensities on the page and allow you to create shade and shadow and texture as you desire. The graphite is soft and easy to blend, it is also easy to lift off the page with a kneadable eraser to create highlights and reflections.

This set is the soft set and for me it contains essential pencils for my sketching - for those who need a harder pencil, e.g. for techincal drawings there is a tin with the H grades of pencil (Derwent 12 Tin Graphic Pencils TECHNICAL (Hard)) , and for those who need a bit of both there is a "medium" tin containing the mid-range (medium hard to medium soft)(Derwent Medium Graphic Pencils Tin of 12) . Of course, you could always go the whole distance and get the full set (which helpfully contains duplicates of the most common artists pencils.)(Derwent Graphic Pencils 24 SET)

In my opinion, this set is essential for any artist - not to mention, it is great value.

I know Derwent from my college, all my tutors highly recommend them and they are not wrong. I still have a small tin that I've had for over a year and they are still going strong. I like how this pack has more than one 2b as these are the pencils I used the most.
They are definitely worth the price, as they will last longer than other brands.

The only set of pencils you'll need to get you started drawing, or if you've already started keep you interested in art. Well packaged and good range of pencils.

These amazing pencils are great for everyday use and drawing.
The box comes in a great set of pencils ranging form all B grade pencils to some H grades.
You can easily create tones if you are working on a graphite portrait and work well with many materials such as blending stumps and tissue helps you to create a realistic and almost photographic composition with soft and dark tones.
With normal pencils you cant create black tones but with the 9B you can almost create a deep black.
I have never seen a range of soft sketching pencils like theses and have never seen a better quality pencil set and I will never need to get another pencils set again.
Many of my friends use these sets of pencils and are very happy with them.
I would recommend these pencils to anyone who is an expert or just starting out with drawing and I would hope you would enjoy using these pencils too.

I am impressed with this Company. Product bought as present. Arrived promptly. However it was established there was a problem with the product. I contacted Quigleys explaining what the problem was. Received a replacement very promptly delivered with no quibble. Couldn't rate the customer care after sales higher. Well done.Derwent Graphic 9B to H Sketching Pencils Ref 34215 [Pack 12]

This is a great set of pencils, but I will not make a use out of all of them. This set includes pencils like 9H, which barely leaves a mark on the paper.
It is better to buy like 8B, 6B, 4B, 2B, HB, 2H, 4H for drawing and it be enough.

Just think if you need that much pencils before you buy.
