I will agree that these pencils are not 'Jet Black', even when used to layer and layer until the darkest tone can be achieved. I would call 'jet black' a 2B charcoal pencil (that's my comparison).

However, having never used Ebony pencils before, I do like them and enjoy the varied strokes and layering you can do with them. I suggest starting out first using them very lightly then as you need to, build up the depth and tone. They are difficult to completely erase once the tone is quite dark/heavy on your paper.

I used them on Bristol paper and the combination of the smoothness of the paper and pencil gave for a lovely, rich working partnership. The pencils glided and were easy to 'manipulate' to the strokes and texture I wanted. They sharpen very nicley and I found working with them using the sharpest point possible was my preferred use. They do tend to smudge but this can be solved by placing a sheet of tracing paper under your working hand (I use tracing paper, as so I can still see what I have done/where I am upto etc.). A light fixative on the finished work will help the pencil not to smudge as it is being handled by the framer.

I would recommend these to any artist who enjoys drawing/sketching. I am an artist of 16 years now but only found out about Ebony pencils in January 2011! For quick sketching or more detailed work, you can achieve the lightest of tones and values with them (use your kneaded eraser to gently lift off pencil) or a dark enough tone/value, within the limits of the one pencil. You could combine a charcoal pencil to achieve 'jet black' tones/values, if you wished and they can be used on multiple surfaces with interesting effects.

This pencil used to be great! I got another when I lost my first but now whenever I sharpen it the wood splinters and the lead breaks off. I'm using an art pencil sharpener, but no matter what I do I can never get it to have a decent point without it breaking. I'm not sure if it is just that particular pencil, but my other worked perfectly. I'm very disappointed in this pencil with its inconsistency.

HELPFUL TIP FOR BUYER!:

When sharpening, make sure you use the BIG HOLE in the sharpener your using. It helps MUCH more.
But it will keep chipping off if you use the tiny hole!

THIS IS A AWESOME SKETCH PENCIL THAT MAKES ME HAPPY ALL DAY :D " in the future a lot further than you could imagine "

Prismacolor Premier Ebony Graphite Drawing Pencil - Ebony

I will always love my Ebony Graphite Sketching Pencils, Jet Black, its extra smooth and rich.
It produces the smoothest graphite deep rich saturation with little wear to the surface of the paper I am using.
I believe it is the addition carbon that allows the extreme tonal qualities, and artist can get from using this pencil.
I purchased a box of these and now house three in my Pencil carrier. My Pencil carrier is always in my Backpack and
alongside a Sketchbook and loose papers.
It works Beautiful in a Moleskine-art Sketchbook, Rising Stonehenge, Strathmore Bristol in both Vellum and Smooth.
I love sketching out problems on Newsprint, Layout Paper and Tracing papers in many varieties.
Yes, It is excellent for making your own Tracing paper.
A great purchase for Artwork, Writing, and Practice in all areas of the Pencil.

I agree with the previous reviewer who found these pencils to be poor quality.

They are made with very cheap wood that sticks and splinters in a sharpener resulting in broken lead and much frustration. Ive already used an inch off the pencils just trying to sharpen them. Im hoping the Design brand I also ordered are better quality.

I know the standard in general for pencils has gone way down over the years and the quality of wood is a common problem.

These are not at all jet black. They are around a 6B and have a metallic shine. They're nice and soft but if you are expecting black you will be disappointed. So far the 8B from Staedtler is the closest one to black that I have tried.

These pencils are not jet black, but they are nice to draw with. If the coloring of them were more important to me, I might give them a lower rating, but I don't, and they have lots of other nice qualities-

The range of values, line weights and textures that you can get with these is pretty wide. The leads are smooth just like it says, and they don't have the impurities that I notice some other soft led pencils I've used have. So, if I'm drawing with these, I won't have something stupid like a random piece of hard 'something' randomly deciding to scratch and impale my paper.

As someone who uses mechanical pencils a lot, these were an interesting change for me. I feel like the thickness of the lead helped me to be more 'decisive' and bold with my drawings. When I draw with a thin pencil lead, I kind of can't help but feather my lines a whole lot to give them substance. I feel kind of silly for not realizing until now that a more versatile pencil like this would help with these problems, but it does. So, I even though these are not jet black, I like them very much.
