I was a little worried after reading some reviewers saying the pencils broke while sharpening them. I sharpened 20 in a row and none broke, not the wood, not the graphite. I guess sharpening requires a little bit of skill these days... ;) The erasers on top are as useless as all erasers on top of pencils so no surprise here. The writing is nice, your typical #2 pencil, not too soft not too hard, dark grey. I personally prefer the darkness and softness of #1 pencils but #2 are better for kids. Paper Mate keeps delivering very good products!
This Pencil is amazing, my friends don't get why i get so excited over a pencil. But its not just any pencil. The only reason i throw away my pencils is because i erase a lot, so my pencil is useless, when the erasers gone within less than a week. I love this pencil. Amazing. I seriously recommend this to anyone and everyone! I Mean its more money than a normal pencil, but how often do you find a find with about a 3 times bigger eraser than an average eraser? Totally worth it though, i'm very happy with my purchase, and i'm hoping you will be to. :)
What I thought I was getting is not what I received. The advertised product clearly stated 8-pack PLUS two extra colors. That is why I ordered this product and ended up not receiving the two extra colors I wanted.
These pens are so cool. I bought a pack for school and used it so much that I used up a pack in half a year. Don't get me wrong. These pens don't run out of ink fast, it just depends on how much you use them and I used them for everything, from daily warmups to large projects. My teachers loved them too because they stand out and are more eye catching than pencils. (Just be careful, some teachers wont allow pens in their class). Anyways, if you run out of ink, you could easily buy a new pack since they are almost anywhere and very inexpensive. Definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.
I used PaperMate Flair tip pens decades ago and the the experience was so so. So for years I thought of these pens as second to some of the mass produced pens on the market. But I was looking for multi colors and decided to give them a try - I was pleasantly surprised - they write far better than I remembered. The line is clean with no feathering or bleed through. They provide a continuous line with little pressure making the writing more comfortable then say ball point pens. I'm very impressed and for the money they provide a great value..now i just need to see how long they last.
Second graders always need cap erasers because they wear down the pencil erasers before the pencils. These Paper Mate Arrowhead erasers do not wiggle and tear like ordinary cap erasers. I give my students one at a time. These erasers last a long time. My whole class loves them.

What our shoppers say:
We have gone through so many sharpeners I've lost count. We've tried electric, manual, and combo manual\/erasers and they all broke within a short time or didn't work well to begin with. I wanted to send my kid to middle school with a reliable option, so I decided to try this one after I read good reviews. He's our family's toughest critic and he said that it was amazing. I wondered if it would crack or break easily because it's in a case in his binder but so far so good. Great purchase and plan to buy more!
