Koh-I-Noor Woodless Pencils - or Graphite Sticks! - have been long-term favourites amongst many artists for their convenience and versatility. A solid 10.3mm stick of graphite with just a thin layer of paper wrap to facilitate handling.
Sharpen like a normal woodcase pencil for detail work, or use the edges or blunt points for shading or broad, expressive work. Sharpening will require a thick-lead pencil sharpener.
Available in HB, 2B, 4B or 6B lead.
Progresso sticks are suitable for artistic drawing, especially on large areas where strong trace is required.
