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.

Cheapest pencil Staples offers in bulk

By Jonathan H.

from St. Louis, MO

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

I've bought a lot of these pencils. In general, I've found them to be good but not great. Most are perfectly OK, but about one out of every 10 is either bent or the lead is noticeably off center. I concur with "duke fleming's" review: "The lead is not evenly exposed on all sides and wood covers the writing point on one side. I don't know if it is off center all the way down or just near the end. Time will tell. Judge for yourself if it is acceptable for your use."

For my purposes (putting them in cups between the 60+ workstations in a college computer lab), that is acceptable - not great, but acceptable because of the low cost per pencil. For our particular type of bulk use, it's the best value Staples offers. True, they cost about twice as much as the mini-sized "golf pencils" that come 144 to a pack, but they are easier to use than the little ones, and they last a lot longer because they're bigger and can be resharpened numerous times; the pre-sharpened point on the golf pencils is pretty lousy and dulls quickly, and then they can only be resharpened once, maybe twice.

So, if you need a LOT of pencils that can be reused for quite a while, these are the best value Staples offers.
