These pencils are very good quality for their price. Sure, they might be a bit more pricey than other sets of pencils but I bought them last year and I still have about seven or eight of them left, even through a year of art GCSE. They have a very good quality lead inside and no matter how many times I have dropped them, the lead has never broken on the inside or outside. These sharpen perfectly and come to a perfect pint when sharpened. They are very good for precise drawing, especially large projects which involve drawing.
