Rated 5 out of 5�by PencilPiano brilliant pencil for any age
I've seen this shape of pencil designed for young children (that is, larger around and shorter), but what a joy to find them in a standard circumference. I appreciate them in daily use, and I've even been known to wrap up pairs of these special pencils as stocking-stuffers at Christmastime. My family loves using them too. For a while they were hard to find. How nice to see them again.

I didn't notice that these were triangular when I placed the order. I thought they would be round like I have always ordered before. They come with a sharpener because they do not fit in the pencil sharpener,
however the manual sharpener they included doesn't work on them either. Who would want triangular pencils? They are very uncomfortable to hold.

Great pencil. Nice grip and as someone else mentioned, there's a rubbery coating that adds comfort.
It is a little over-sized for most pencil sharpeners.

Rated 5 out of 5�by sksapp My FAVORITE pencil ever
Love the way these pencils feel in my hand--both the shape and the rubberized surface are very comfortable for extended use. And the lead has the perfect combination of smooth stroke, line thickness/color, and feel.
Only downside is that they don't fit in many standard electric pencil sharpers--just have to get one that accommodates slightly thicker pencils. I actually prefer a manual that allows adjustment for pencil size. The sharpener the comes in a box of 12 is actually kind of useless.
