My seven year old daughter calls these the pencils that don't break after you sharpen them. The principal at her school bought cheap bulk pencils and the assistant spent all day sharpening them for the kids. I bought these, sent them to school for her teacher, and my daughter came home and hugged me. She said the teacher was relieved because the Staples pencils last all day and the assistant could spend time helping students in class instead of sharpening pencils.

I needed pencils for one of my college courses. I bought these because they seemed like a good value.

The lead will break off BEFORE you come close to sharpening it to being minimally useful. I have a hand sharpener, and in the last day I've completely worn down three pencils by sharpening without actually being able to use them.

I'm currently using an old pencil and, as it's wearing down, will soon be unable to complete this coursework even though I own sixty-five unused pencils.

These are not worth any cost; I'd recommend buying a better quality pencil at a higher cost. It's really not worth the hassle.

adequate for all of our office functions and the price is great. We really have to watch our budget since we are a public non-profit.

My son goes through a pencil a day so purchasing 72 in a box at such a reasonable price is fantastic.

Ok for the price

Comments about Staples® #2 Yellow Pencils, 6 Dozen:

These pencils are OK for the price, but, sometimes when sharpened the lead will break just when the pencil is sharp enough which means re-sharpening and of course using a lot more pencils. Another problem I have is again during sharpening. The lead is not situated in the center of the wood so that when I sharpen the pencil the lead is fully exposed on one side of the pencil and completely covered by wood on the other side. I spend more time trying to sharpen the pencil evenly which is very frustrating. The wood is harder to sharpen than on the higher priced name brands, but for the price they are OK.

Pencils are a basic office need

Comments about Staples® #2 Yellow Pencils, 6 Dozen:

Who would have thought that a simple wooden pencil would be the writing instrument of choice in this office? Personally, I was very surprised. We work in an office with 10 employees and the cup that sits on the front desk usually has pens in it. I stuck two random pencils in it one day, they disappeared, and the next thing I heard was "where are the pencils in this place?". Apparently, we like to erase our mistakes without scribbling out the errors with a pen. Makes perfect sense to me. Pencils. Highly recommended.

good buy but….

Comments about Staples® #2 Yellow Pencils, 6 Dozen:

Made in Vietnam. This box was a good buy, however, not that great to sharpen using a child's sharpener. The first lead fell off, wood splintered a bit. I could sharpen enough to use. They will go with me to Haiti and be usable. . With the little point I could make, they wrote okay. I will have to see how they do to decide if I would buy them again.
