It is very easy to knead, holds a point for dabbing the tiniest specks of pencil off the page; can be shaped to create textures on the page; no obvious reduction in kneadability over time; comes with a handy container (prevents the soft eraser picking up "bits" from a bag or art box.)
This is not huge, it is quite a small eraser, but it really does work very well.
This is an artist's eraser, it is not for general purpose "rubbing out", if that is what you are looking for I'm a fan of Koh-I-Noor MAGIC Erasers for graphite pencils .
It will happily mop up a LOT of graphite, as long as it's not too dark or ingrained into the paper. So, as long as you keep your sketching lines 'reasonably' light, this eraser will remove them COMPLETELY, leaving no trace of graphite behind AT ALL. And you know what that means: you can sketch endlessly, erasing and redrawing, until your drawing is EXACTLY what you want it to be. Thanks to this eraser, I now feel confident that as long as I have enough time to work and rework I can draw ANYTHING. Also, if you ink over the top of your graphite drawing, you can then go over the ink with this eraser and any initial pencil work will be eradicated leaving a perfect, clean inking.
By the way, ultimately (after, say, several weeks of use), it will absorb too much graphite, at which point you can just wash it under the tap using ordinary household soap. That will restore it to its orginal condition.
Also, just in case you're wondering, it can be used to some degree on charcoal or pastel (or similar) but it won't erase them particularly well. But then nothing does really. It's just the nature of those chalkier tools and not the eraser's fault!
All in, then, as far as I'm concerned, this eraser is a little gem. I use it with a Staedtler Mars Lumograph Grade F pencil and feel it's a winning combination. Note: anything darker than F or HB, on white paper, and the eraser probably won't remove it completely, and will instead just lighten it a lot.
One last thing, a warning really. I was slightly disappointed to find that the eraser is not that gorgeous aqua-greenish blue that it appears to be in the picture. It's more of a dull greyish blue. Just thought you might want to know so that you're not disappointed when you unwrap it. All in, though, a delightful and amazingly useful purchase. I don't think it's going overboard to say that kneadable erasers are one of professional artists' top trade-secrets.
The small size of the eraser surprised me when I opened the delivery, although it is as described in the listing as 35mm x 25mm x 8mm.
I didn't bother to look at a ruler to get a physical impression of how big it actually is.
Another kneadable eraser from Faber-Castell linked here:-
was advertised as the same size but in fact was a lot bigger measuring 40mm x 38mm x 10mm.
Seeing as the Koh-I-Noor eraser was only £1 while the larger Faber-Castell eraser was £2.40p I guess it is ok.
I have attached a photo comparing the 2 erasers side by side.
It should be functional for my lightweight outdoors watercolour kit.
