I'm absolutely not an artist, but from time to time I doodle and I must say, these pencils are great. They have a nice weight to them that you don't get from traditional wooden pencils.
The photos attached are after a few weeks of use. And again, I did purchase from Warehouse Deals where I knew there may have been damage to the packaging.

STILL FOR the QUALITY OF COLOR PENCILS I GIVE 5 stars.
BUT FOR the PACKAGING I GIVE of 2 STARS.
These pencils are woodless, which means they have no wood casing. They have a coloured lacquer on the barrel to prevent colour from getting on your hands. The colours are vibrant, and the pencil is not too soft or too hard. These pencils are not as soft as Prismacolor but they aren't as hard as other cheaper brands like Crayola. They're blendable, but they don't blend as effortlessly as Prismas. The sharpen nicely too. These pencils also last quite awhile since they have no wood casing.
Other reviewers have mentioned that these are easily breakable, but I disagree. I have not broken a single one of these pencils, and I've had them for 4 years. One of them was already broken when I bought them, and other than that one pencil they are all still intact. That being said, these pencils should be handled with care. Dropping them on tile, wood flooring, or any other hard surface can break them. This is true of any coloured pencil. If you drop one of these, it might break. If you drop a regular coloured pencil with wood casing, the lead inside might break and made it difficult to sharpen. If one of your pencils arrives broken, or you break one, it's really no big deal. You can still use the broken piece easily with a pencil extender.
All in all I would recommend these pencils for anyone who is interested in using coloured pencils. These would also be great for older children interested in art. The quality of these pencils is much better than Crayola, so your older artist will appreciate it, and this set won't break the bank.
The quality of these Koh-i-Noor pencils are just a tad below Faber-Castells. The lead is a bit harder, which makes it ever so slightly difficult to draw, as well as make the colour dark (you can only press so hard). The colour quality is very nice, but not the best money can buy. The selection of colours is okay, but seems a bit random; there should have been more focus on primary hues, to make mixing new colours easier. However, since these are cheaper than Faber-Castells, I think it's a fair trade-off in quality.
The woodless pencil is a great idea on paper, but fails in its execution. You will have to sharpen them more often to keep a reasonable edge, and that will mean throwing all that valuable pigment straight into the trash. Wood peelings are not evil, and will make quite a decent fertilizer.
I would recommend buying Koh-i-Noor's other set, the set of normal pencils, with led encased in good old wood.
