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.
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
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.

Best pencils ever. When the erasers wear out, get the Pentel Hi-Polymer Eraser Caps Non-Abrasive, Pack of 10 (ZEH02BP10), and until then enjoy my review of them.Published 1 month ago by Birdie
