Derwent Academy Sketching Pencils Tin, 3B-2H - Set of 6.
From the manufacturer
The Derwent Academy Sketching Pencils have a slim 6.9 mm hexagonal graphite grey barrel with a long black gloss end dip. Its hexagonal shape makes the pencil easy to hold and control particularly for detailed drawings. The beautifully crafted Derwent Academy pencils are made with natural wood barrels and quality graphite. This ensures they are easy to sharpen and break resistant for a hard-wearing pencil.
The size of the pencil core varies depending on its hardness. It is 2.2mm for the harder degrees (2B – 5H) and 2.8mm for the softer degrees (3B - 6B). The degrees included in this tin are 3B, 2B, B, HB, H, and 2H. Due to the variety in hardness, these Derwent Academy Sketching Pencils are ideal for sketching and blending through to more detailed work.
This is a great trial set of 6 sketching pencils whether you enjoy using them on their own or as the preliminary to a colour drawing. This tin contains Derwent Academy Sketching Pencils in 3B, 2B, B, HB, H, and 2H all presented in a handy tin with hinged lid to keep your set organised, safe and secure.

It’s a very nice set to have, as you have all the basic types that are required for drawing. They are good quality pencils.
I absolutely loved the tin they came in, and if they had been for me, I would have definitely kept it. However, my daughter wanted to use her favourite pencil case – but it’s a lovely tin, well presented too. I would think they are more expensive than they are.
Daughter suddenly announced she needed proper art pencils and next day these arrive.
Her art teacher was impressed with them!
