When I was studying in Rome I found two (Koh-i-noor #5649 which is a heavier weight and a lighter one,orange in colour Koh-i-noor #48 )large retractable drawing pencils.. they are for large sized leads and I love drawing with them as they are easier to hold than pencils and they curb my desire to get stuck in details early in my drawings. Your leads are the only ones outside of Italy that I have found will fit into the holders. Thanks.

Beautiful range of leads. Works even better than pencils.
Rated by: Steve Z. in Norwood, MA
On a recent trip to Italy I bought a really great lead holder at a small Rome pen shop located just off of the Piazza Rotunda. I love the holder but they had a very limited selection of some very hard leads. When I got home I searched the web for leads that would fit the holder and was delighted to find the Creatacolor products. I ordered a couple of boxes of different degree leads and have loved using them ever since. They are a pleasure to draw with, giving me the ability to transition from thick to thin lines with ease. For people who love to draw with graphite these leads are a dream.

I first discovered these graphite leads in an assortment offered by Cretacolor, and now they are my drawing tool of choice. They are extremely easy to hold and have improved the freedom of my sketches, can easily be sharpened, without breaking, to form fine lines and the sides of the point are great for shading. Cretacolor offers similar products in grey and brown shades which I haven't been able to find in the US - please consider carrying these products!!
