These pencils are usually the ones you would see going around schools among students, given how good they actually are and best of all - getting a good bargain out of these. As we speak, these pencils right now can be purchased for only $.58 cents for a pack of a dozen, so with its strong wood calibur that ensures longetivity/durability, there's really no reason why you should wait any longer if you just so happen to be in need of pencils anytime in the near future. Once you get a hold of these pencils by Staples, I'm most certain that the average individual will no longer need to go worrying about "which pencil to get" and whatnot - that is, of course, if you're looking for the most basic that obviously writes as a normal pencil.
Otherwise, there are Ticonderogas (might have spelled it wrong) and whatnot for that purpose (special kinds that provide the individual with things such as other pencil mark colors than gray and a smooth, seemingly unparalled grip, just to name a few). These yellow pencils, along with the highly essential convenience of a good sharpening "experience" if, say an electronic sharpener doesn't happen to be nearby and you have a manual one in hand, also include a considerably good eraser that cleanly erases any pencil/erasable pen mark.
But, in the end, you can only do so much with a pencil - in other words, this is merely just a pencil; nothing more so with that being said, if in need of pencils that are of good quality, why not shoot for these, especially since they're available at such a price? If you ask me, it'd be unwise to not take advantage of the bargain!
