My daughter loves these for her art.

The leads can be sharpened to a long sharp point, and I have no issues with the lead breaking on me.

There are many excellent colored pencil brands available today, with some of the premier labels being Caran D'Arche (Switzerland), Conté (France), Faber Castell (Germany), Talens (the Netherlands) and Koh-i-noor (Czech Republic). Each pencil brand has its own loyal following, and it is certainly true that the performance characteristics of each leaves a unique "signature" on paper (i.e., the experienced eye can sometimes tell which brand of pencil was used for a piece of artwork by examining luminosity, reflection, depth of color, and other characteristics). I have used all these brands myself, having brought back from Europe entire sets from various manufacturers, and often in different sub types ("artist," "student," and so on). Some also have added touches that really make a pencil set shine, including rounded triangular shafts with subtle inlaid grips, bonded coatings between the lead and the pencil wood to minimize lead shattering, and soft textured surfaces for improved gripping and comfort. Some sets are even now beginning to adhere to the lightfastness specifications as developed by the Colored Pencil Society of America.

So, what should we think about a set of American made colored pencils when they are competing with these premier brands, some of which have been in business for centuries? The answer might be surprising to hear. After using all these brands for an extended period of time, I can say that these Prismacolor "Premier" pencils easily hold their own against the world's best colored pencils.

What are the characteristics of the Prismacolor "Premier" pencils that make them so good?

1. Smooth, silky, and rich lay down of color
2. Little smearing, even when laying down dense patches of color
3. Ability to blend colors as needed
4.

I used to draw all the time. Now as a mom of five I really don't have much free time, but I recently got some of the Dover adult coloring books to decompress at the end of the day. I remembered loving my Prismacolor colored pencils as a teen, and went back to them. I shopped around a little and watched the price fluctuate on Amazon for a bit before springing for them, since paying this much for colored pencils is kind of tough even though I already knew their value.

For richness and color selection, these can't be beat. They are miles ahead of Crayola. The only problem is if they get dropped, the lead breaks into a million pieces inside the pencil and as you sharpen it, the point just keeps breaking off. After spending the money on these, having that happen is a little heartbreaking. And with all these kids, it is a miracle they haven't gotten their hands on more than just a few. I caught my two year old using them as drumsticks.

As a bit of an aside, if you are a parent of a teen who loves to draw - my dad took me to an art supplies store when I was in high school and let me pick out a set of these and I still have several of them. The experience still stands out in my mind as one of my favorite things my dad did for me - he spent money on these really nice pencils because he knew it was what I was into. (I went on to become a nurse).

The lead crumbling in the pencil knocked it down a star, and if that could be fixed, these babies would be like Kryptonite.

Prismacolor pencils are well-known for their range in rich colors and vibrant laydown, setting them apart from any other type of colored pencil.

I've tried them myself and I agree. The lead is wonderfully soft, and therefore makes blending colors and pushing them into one another an ease to do.

The downside is that the lead is a little too soft, and makes it harder to get the colors smooth (it's easier to do with Crayola because Crayola has harder lead). It can be done, however, and these are great pencils that especially go well with Prismacolor markers. :)

Bought these for my son as he is into art/shading/sketching. These pencils are top quality and hold up. The lead is so thick that it does not break like most other art pencils. Great Value too.

I was a little hesitant at buying these quality crayons as they were pricy at the local store, but I bought them as they were recommended by my course provider This is a quality product at a great price from Amazon. The pencils colour in easily and have a rich colour that is easy to blend. I am so glad I bought them and after trying mine out two classmates who bought other brands have now bought theses through Amazon too.

These pencils are smooth and made of durable solid wood. They are creamy in texture when they spread, and I like them a lot.

When I first saw the texture of the color the pencils leave, my immediate thought was why did I spend this much money on these as opposed to just buying a big box of crayola crayons. Since I was coloring the Victorian Houses adult coloring book, I soon knew why. The detail I was able to achieve with these coloring the trim and such, I could never have done with the regular crayons. Since these are the first time I've used these for such a project I can't compare them to other coloring pencils I've used in the past since I've never needed this sort of detail with color pencils. My only regret is that I didn't buy the 48 color box since I could have gotten 2x as much for only 10 more bucks. Sometimes while coloring I wish I had more color variations of red, beige and orange including a grey. I imagine everything I've been wanting is in the 48 box. Overall, very good pencils. I find that the sharp tip is more durable than at least one reviewer stated.
