Graphite Lesson

This was my first time using the faber-castell 9000 pencils. While I will be reviewing the caran d’ache grapite pencils and blocks soon (just purchased those recently), I have a hard time believing any pencil will be able to stand up to these. I did test the darkest pencils in both sets and the faber- castell is a deeper black than the caran d’ache.  I didn’t test the rest yet though 🙂
