My sketching pencils are triangular in cross-section and I like them. Now Ticonderoga, who really define "school pencil" with the famous school-bus yellow paint and green top make triangular pencils for writing. The only complaint is that erasers these days are hard, nasty and leave orange marks. Why the fine art of eraser manufacture has been lost escapes me, but pencil erasers are horrible. Buy a separate eraser for the job.

I bought these pencils because I have twin boys with fine motor troubles and were having a hard time writing. I had thought about buying regular pencils with those triangle jelly pencil grips until I saw these. These work great and don't have the distraction of the grips.

Ticonderoga makes a great pencil. I like these #2 tri-write pencils because with their triangular design, they don't just roll off the edge of a work bench or board when you set them down. They also tend to stay in place more securely when set behind the ear as well. These are normal sized triangular pencils, not the really big triangular ones that kid's use in the classroom.
I've tried the pencils that Staples sells under their name, but they are cheap Chinese junk made from soft, poor quality wood with leads that break constantly when you write with them and even when you try to sharpen them. The eraser on them is also some cheap waxy rubber compound that smudges more than it erases. I ended up using them for kindling in our Chiminaya this summer. I'll be sticking with name brand pencils like Ticonderoga from now on.

This is a complete shame. A beautifully designed pencil, but the manufacturer treats it with Microban. Make your own decision about whether this is an issue for you - but I will not buy every day use products treated with long term anti-microbial chemicals. Check the manufacturers website where they divulge more info about each of their products. Some people hold pencils in their teeth occasionally, is that safe with microban? As of writing this review, Amazon does not post the info about Microban. Dixon Ticonderoga uses it in many of their products. What a complete shame to ruin otherwise wonderfully designed pencils this way.

I use this for my students and like them much more than cylinder-shaped pencils. The triangular shape helps young kids hold it better and develop a better grip. The shape also stops them from rolling of the table which is a big problem in a classroom with young kids since they're always having to dive under tables/desks to get their regular pencils. I highly recommend these for 5-7 year old kids!

They are exactly what I was expecting. I will be buying more when we run out. They are a quality product not like some cheap pencils I've seen.

When I ordered this, I was just looking at the price which was reasonable at the time I clicked on it. I realized after that it is triangular which is not what I wanted. Out of curiosity I just let the order go through and thought to myself I wanted to try it anyhow.

My biggest concern is sharpening it. Maybe the three corners will jam or at least make it harder to sharpen it. To my surprise, there are no issues at all. In fact, it is easier to hold because you have better grip which prevents it from spinning while sharpening.

The triangular corners are not sharp but are rounded. You wont even think it is triangular if you are just looking at it. It doesn't roll out to the floor from the table like the hexagons. It also feels very comfortable holding it in your fingers.

Does your hand get tired writing? Do you frequently change your grip on the pencil? Have a kiddo with a grip that must be fixed? Then these pencils are for you.

Upon first glance, these look like regular pencils. As you pick one up in preparation to write, you discover that your fingers easily adjust to the perfect position. The triangular shape is both comfortable and strong.

Dependable and long lasting Ticonderoga pencils come through again. Tri-Writes are made with top quality cedar, strong graphite lead, and a secure eraser head. They are the preferred pencil for all my students. Try a box. You will immediately feel the difference!
