dixon ticonderoga pencils
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Lead is always in the center of the barrel (reducing uneven sharpening). Wood barrel is a finer grade (easier to sharpen). Eraser is softer (does not leave marks or rip the page).

Weakness: More costly than others.

Not all pencils are created equal. Dixon Ticonderoga Pencils are, by far, the greatest pencil ever made. They are slightly more costly than others and rarely go on sale but their benefits far outweigh their price. Because the lead is centered in the middle of the pencil, we sharpen it less because the tip always sharpens to a nice even point. Because the wood is a finer grade, the sharpener does not have to work so hard to sharpen it (with the cheaper pencils, our sharpener died half way through because it worked too hard). Because the eraser is softer, there are no marks left on pages so the finished paper looks neat, and it does not rip the page, so we have diminished frustrations about having to start over again.
