Black Warriors it is.
THANK YOU. Seriously, I don't understand how it takes anyone more than a couple uses to notice these things. The sharpening thing drove me INSANE. And even when you would manage to get it sharpened to a nice point (on the 18th try with the 47th sharpener), the point would just up and fall out two seconds after. The worst.
Black Mirado Warriors >>>>>> black Ticonderogas.
my black ticons are NOTHING like that O__O the eraser is soo good, very smooth and effective, and the points last whole sections for me, and i press really hard on the paper. did you buy them online or in person? i've heard that the ones you get online are manufactured in a different place but idk *shrug*
I owned many, many packs before I realized there were better pencils out there. I used them for years.
It's about raising your standards. The eraser is not sooo good, the points are not particularly smooth, and the only points they hold are not particularly sharp (and any sharp point either wears down immediately, or falls out). Once you try better pencils, you will not be able to stand the black Ticonderoga, or if you can, then you are probably someone who just can't discern differences between pencils anyway, and you might as well use the ones sent out by John Marshall Law School with mints and hand sanitizer.
Come to my level.
