Reliable and useful pencils,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Staedtler 120-0 Noris Pencils 2B (Box of 12) (Office Product)
You can usually pick up "standard" HB pencils in many places, but the reason I always choose 2B is that the lead's soft enough to erase/alter notes easily without leaving a trace as a harder HB would, and they're also a pleasure to write with -- nice and smooth. Staedtler is a good make: reliable, and their pencils sharpen well. Mine arrived very promptly by standard mail from Caboodle, though unfortunately the box had only been put into a thin plastic envelope without any padding or protection -- not the postie's fault as he didn't know what they were, but on being pushed through the letterbox the pack fell onto a hard tiled floor and I hope the pencils survived the impact without any of the leads breaking. However that's an observation about the supply, not the product, and I have no hesitation in giving these pencils 5 stars for consistently excellent quality.
