New Tool Discovery: Staedtler Mars Lumograph Pencils

Here is my (totally surprising to me) review of the Staedtler Mars Lumograph Pencils, thanks to one of my viewers, ECurry for the suggestion! I learned from this experiment- awesome!
Make sure you check in next week when I review the Staedtler Mars Lumograph BLACK pencils so you can see the differences.

Since I filmed this vlog, I’ve heard from some of you who also noticed the change in the Mars Lumograph Pencils, so when I couldn’t find more information on their website, I emailed Staedtler and got this response:
“We are sorry that we caused some confusion with the Lumograph series.
At the beginning of 2016 we integrated the Lumograph 100-7B and 100-8B into our Lumograph black series (for artists). So the pencil that was formerly called 100-7B now has the article number 100B-6B and the former 100-8B is now 100B-8B. They are not blue but black lacquered:
So you are absolutely correct in noticing that there has been a change. Unfortunately, this information has not reached all our customers. We are very sorry for this.”
Really great to know that there was a recent change, as I had observed, and that the company was so responsive to my inquiry.
