Writing a review here for two kinds of pencils I bought in the same order: PAPER MATE MIRADO BLACK WARROR & PAPER MATE MIRADO CLASSIC - both are listed as Medium Soft Lead #2 pencils.

They are both perfect and I'm never going back to any other kind of pencil (except the SharpWriter (also made by Paper Mate)! I have tried lots and lots of pencils and none are as smooth, dark lead, and sharpen to such a point.

If you don't love pencils or care which kind you use, then you can stop reading now. If you're finicky, picky, and have to have exactly the right writing instrument, read on. If you've tried lots of kinds before without finding the right one, read on. This is where I'm coming from.

I use pencils for almost all kinds of writing I do: journalling, short-story writing, and in my planner. I write probably ten 8x10 pages a day on average. I want a pencil that's going to be responsive. There are lots of reasons for this. I love being able to vary the pressure I use on the pencil and be able to see it change the imprint left on the paper. I tend to press hard when I write, and I want a dark, black line that's sharp and thin. As the point wears down, I also like the line I write to get thicker. Sometimes I will draw with the thicker lines, and that's a good reason to use these pencils, too. They are great for drawing the outline and also for shading.

I've tried all different kinds of pencils, but won't use any pencil with a name brand I don't recognize or that I can pick up for free with an advertisement on it or that I find lying around or that I can get at W*Mart or the Dollar Store. No thank you. The cheap price is not worth it to me because I hate writing with them. Believe me, I've tried.

I love "real" pencils. They're not the most "sustainable" choice, but there's something satisfying about them--writing, rolling them between the fingers, sharpening them.

The old Berol Mirado #2.5 were great, but Papermate evidently bought the name and changed the formula. Unfortunately, these are not the #2.5 Berol Mirado of old. They're really #2. Too soft for me.

I found these pencils to be firmer than standard #2 pencils, but not as firm as I remember 2.5's being. Next time I might try some drafting pencils since they apparently come in #3.

I was required to buy the Mirado pencil for my daughter's school supply list. I didn't understand why until I wrote with one of them. The lead is very sturdy and they write extremely well. I would definitely recommend the Mirado pencil to anyone looking for a solid lead pencil.

we like a pencil that holds its point yet writes dark enough that you don't have to press too hard on the paper. This pencil has those qualitys.

These Mirado Classic pencils are decent pencils. They are a rich yellow color, with a nice metallic gold stamping saying "PAPERMATE Mirado Classic HB 2" along the side. I like the font that "Mirado Classic" is in; sort of small caps with a big swash on the leading "M". The ferule is a weirdly dull gold, as though some cheap coating on aluminum instead of gold anodizing or actual brass. There is a nice ruby red stripe, and the eraser itself is pink but a bit on the reddish side.

They write ok, the claim that they are smooth is perhaps overstated, the writing is fairly average to me. The pencil lines are darker than Ticonderoga and the point wears down a good bit faster than Ticonderogas as well. The wood is nice, and the leads sharpen well for me in a standard wall mounted crank pencil sharpener. After using many of these pencils down to little nubs, I can say with reliability that I have never had one of those scratchy bits come up in the lead, which is maybe why they refer to them as "smooth".

For the price, these are awesome. I prefer the darkness of the writing from these to that of Ticonderoga pencils, which overall are of almost exactly the same quality as these. I would say that these are like Pepsi to Ticonderoga's Coke, if that analogy makes sense. Cost and quality wise, I'd recommend these pencils. Fairly standard grade, better than the cheapest ones, but not as nice as General's Semi-Hex or Musgrave 100 Test Scoring pencils.

I'm picky about my pencils. I've tried Paper Mate Classics, Paper Mate Americans, Paper Mate Black Warriors, USA Gold, Dixon Classic, and Dixon Ticonderoga, among others. These are the most balanced pencils that I've gotten, with no bad attributes that I can find. Unlike the Dixon Classics, the Paper Mate Mirado erasers don't fall off. They write better than the USA Golds and certainly better than the Ticonderogas.

When sharpening these, they give an even sharpen all the way around, unlike some pencils that tend to sharpen on certain sides. The gold writing on the side looks classy, and the eraser doesn't leave smudges. I love the Paper Mate Black Warrior pencils too, but these have the added bonus of looking traditional enough to not be questioned when using them on tests. Both kinds, though, are #2, as required on Scantrons and other such tests.
