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.

Break easily, hard to sharpen

By Small School

from Vermont

Verified Buyer

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

Recently I ordered the Staples brand #2 pencils (accidentally) for our school, they were the best price when I was comparison shopping - but I'm new in the office position so I wasn't aware that this was a problem.... the teachers were very quick to correct my mistake as they had already learned that these pencils are very hard to sharpen and then they break very easily. This makes for very unhappy teachers and very frustrated students! The teachers advised me to only order the Ticonderoga brand #2 pencils.

Unsharpened Pencils

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

These are great pencils for the price. Wish they were pre-sharpened, because some of our pencil sharpeners don't sharpen evenly the first time.

The staples brand is classic and solid. Each pencil sharpens easily. The eraser is firm and does not break off
