About a month ago I happily purchased $25.00 worth of the new MATTE finish Black Warrior pencils, unaware that they were not what I thought. I'd discovered this singularly marvelous pencil quite by accident about ten years ago, and have been an ardent devotee ever since. (I really didn't want so many, but Amazon wouldn't ship otherwise.)

Anyway, when I got them I was thrilled and began to sharpen a box right away. The first two sharpened fine.

However, the third pencil balked. I twisted it and twisted it in the little hand-held sharpener until it was half its length! The rest were a bit sluggish in the sharpener, too.

So, jumped online and did some research, and quickly found out that the new pencils are not made in the USA, but made in Mexico an, sadly, of clearly lesser quality. They don't have the glossy black shaft anymore, and are just an "okay" pencil. They write satisfactorily, but they don't glide like the older model. They just don't have that oomph.

I had an audition last week and opened my portfolio to pull out a pencil. Much to my delight, there was a lovely "old" GLOSSY Black Warrior I'd tucked inside, ready to go to work. It wrote smooth as silk and I put it away with much respect.

I am a woodworker and use pencils constantly for drafting and design as well as for actually marking wood. This pencils are soft enough so you can see the line and the lead won't break, yet hard enough that it holds a point. The wood is premium so it sharpens right the first time. The lead is of course graphite, but I think it has some wax in it so it flows nicely. This is one of the best prices on the Web, too!

I have been teaching for over 35 years and have used and seen a lot of pencil products. The Black Warrior is the BEST pencil I have ever used. I encourage my students to buy these, especially the pre-sharpened type. Many pencil companies should be ashamed of the inferior product they are offering. I cringe at the start of the school year when the kids return to the classroom with a handful of cheap pencils that do not sharpen or have leads that repeatedly break. You don't find this with the Black Warrior. This pencil sharpens evenly and writes with a smooth lead. TEACHERS OF AMERICA, UNITE! Collect and return all the crummy pencils your kids come to school with. Buy a Black Warrior for every kid and use them to write product complaint letters to all the companies that sell ripoff pencils. A pencil is a basic school supply and should be a quality item because it is frequently used. Mirado's Black Warrior is this product. It may cost a bit more than the mega-box of composite pencils, but the money is well spent.

Chances are, you can't afford a Rolls Royce automobile, a Patek Philippe watch or a mansion in the Hamptons. But for less than a quarter apiece, you can write with the best wooden pencil in the world: the Black Warrior. Who says rich people have all the fun?

1. Wood chips off in sharpener leaving a coarse feel instead of a smooth finish.
2. 25% of leads are off center. This would be horrible QC in a golf scorecard pencil.
3. Not the pencil shown in picture. They show the old made in the USA version with gloss finish and high quality embossing. This is flat black cheapo made in Mexico :(
4. Arrived 2 days late

Mirado Black Warriors used to be the best pencil on the market. That is until Paper Mate bought them out.
The quality finish is gone, the foil stamping is barely legible, the erasers don't stay in, and worst of all the lead is off center so sharpening with any consistency is impossible.

The latest version of a once superior pencil is now just like most of the other junk out there.

These are great pencils. I'm a school age kid and tend to erase a lot. It really annoys me when erasers on pencils don't work well. These erasers work really well and I like the texture of the pencils. Overall a really great pencil.

You wouldn't think something as humble as a pencil could create enthusiasm in a buyer, but these Mirado Black Warrior pencils did in me. These are so good, I ordered several additional boxes for myself and one for a gift. They are comfortable in the hand, the erasers work well but gently on delicate papers and newsprint, and the "lead" is perfectly smooth for effortless and even writing. My first reaction after using one of these was along the lines of "Gee! I didn't know what crumby pencils I'd been using before!" I use pencils every day for note-taking, puzzle-working, and general scribbling. I literally threw out all the other pencils in the house and replaced them with these.
