But more on that later. Even after two full years of usage with minimal cleaning, the SLX turned as if it were brand new. We finally end our progression upward at the ferrule where more disappointment awaits us. Honestly, I prefer to keep my feet planted on something solid. All of the points end in a somewhat dull looking tip but this rather smart of Newell Rubbermaid. The herb comes out airy and fluffy, ready to roll or vape. The Black Warrior is only slightly shorter in overall length than the Ticonderoga. Each has a very nice and smooth coat of lacquer in a matte finish. The erasers seem shorter than what is found on the Ticonderogas and they are covered with some sort of white power. The pencils have been lying around in their packaging while I have been test driving the Ticonderoga. Statistically speaking, this equates to a one in ten chance of having a warped pencil. If you think this is just a marketing slogan then read this text that is located on the back of packaging.

It got saturated and the eraser turned black after one single pass.
If you think this is just a marketing slogan then read this text that is located on the back of packaging. Only the bare minimum amount of material was removed.
As mentioned earlier, each pencil is pre -sharpened so you should never see overflowing lacquer at the end like the Ticonderoga.
Compare the performance of the Black Warrior eraser left to the Ticonderoga right. It helps keep the point in tact during shipment.
And of course, a good grinder should also be easy and effortless to turn- for a long time! I have been using mine for almost a year and using it is still as smooth as a glass.
