FABER CASTELL PENCILS - Quality good but higher price
The product quality is very good. pencil grip is excellent. Paint quality of body is excellent. The accessories provided with it are having extremely fine quality. Only thing I would like to mention it is slightly overpriced product. Accessories cost Rs. 10/- approx. and the pencil remains Rs. 5/- each which is really not too much cost worthy. Quality is excellent think for price before u purchase.
I remember my childhood struggling to keep the pencil nib from breaking off. Inconsistent darkness and the pencils being too slippery sometimes. Nataraj was a safe option but the "lead" sometimes broke off too soon. Im using faber castel with my 4 year old and i am very happy with the darkness, the grip, the quality of the lead - which doesnt break off while sharpening. The shape of the pencil is ideal for a good grip on young hands. A good option for school homework and primary school go-ers.
