New Tools: Koh-i-noor Woodless Colored Pencils

Stephanie

Our friend Gail Young recently sent me an e-mail about these Koh-i-noor woodless pencils which I have yet to try. Her thoughts?

  • Soft but not smudgy.
  • Blend beautifully.
  • Colors are coordinated; often inexpensive ($9 for 12) sets don’t do this.
  • Packaging: terrible. Plastic holder that’s a waste with a cardboard slide cover. Pencils are impossible to remove without nine-inch-nails. Cover difficult to slide back on.
  • But to me, they’re an A-, since they’re beautiful.

You can purchase these online from Artist and Craftsman Supply or check with your local art/craft store.

  1. Seems kind of odd to make woodless pencils and then use plastic and cardboard for the box. I would guess they assume you will put the pencils in another box so their box is meant for transportation.
