Customer Reviews

The eraser also works well enough to erase the dark print of the pencil.
Sabrina
They sharpen well, and stay sharp, we don't have a problem with the lead breaking constantly like the pencils made in China.
MommaJ
It holds a point very well and the lead writes very smoothly and darkly.

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!

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?

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.

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

I would just like to say first that I despise pens; most likely because my penmenship is terrible and pens just make it that much worse. I also can't stand mechanical pencils with the constant breaking of the thin, cheap lead or the jamming of lead. I find I spend more time trying to get a mechanical pencil to work then I do writing with it. I just prefer your standard wood pencil which I have recently started to learn is no longer the norm. These days you can't a soul with a wooden pencil and it's even harder to find a pencil sharpeners but I continue on because maybe I'm stubborn. Recently I switched from the Dixon Ticanderoga, which I used to tell everyone was the best pencil in the world, to the Mirado Black Warrior. I have been using the Ticanderoga since way back in high school when my friend and I would argue over who used the better pencils, his Black Warrior or my Ticanderoga. So when I started to experience so defects in my favorite brand of pencil, which I learned was caused by moving manufactoring for the U.S. to Mexico, I knew where to turn. I bought a pack of Black Warriors instead of my beloved Ticanderogas and to tell you the truth I couldn't be happier. They are of the highest quality. If you need pencils, buy these.

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.

I wanted to make a racist review about the Black Warrior pencil to troll people. However, I got a box tonight, sharpened one up, and DAMN this is a nice pencil. I've become accustomed to my kids' crappy #2 and colored pencils. The Black Warrior
-sharpens to a point, even with a crappy sharpener. You don't have to grind down half the pencil. No waste.
-holds the point.
-resharpens with like two twists of my crappy sharpener.
-has super-cool shiny gold-on-black writing on it.
-smells good, like being in kindergarten, but not in a perverted way and all the kids are potty-trained.
-IS BLACK!

Until someone comes out with a Die Hard, Terminator, or Predator pencil, I'm sticking with the Black Warrior.

These pencils are really good. They have a fearsome name that will strike fear into your math teachers eyes. They have great erasers; they will last forever. I forgot to study for a test, and i got an 87. I have never gotten a bad grade with it. IT RULES!
