Try these Semi-Hex 2-HB. They just feel better, smooth, sharpen like a dream. I reach for these rather than a pen now, and great for crosswords! Will never use Ticonderoga or other pencils made in China, these are for the school kids in our family.
I home school with a lot of intensity on writing. I purchased three different brands of pencils to compare. Ticonderoga, Prospector, and General. I let my children use one pencil, to draw, write a story, and complete a math sheet. I switched pencils each day. They preferred the General (No Breakage, No Uneven Sharpening). I myself put the pencils through a test. I wrote, and drew using the different pencils; I prefer general. I used manual and electric sharpeners with no issues. I will be buying only general pencils from now on. What's interesting, I stumbled on these pencils by accident. What a great product!
Have seen General's art products for years but didn't know the made general use pencils such as the Semi-Hex. Found them on their website store and ordered Semi-Hex 2HB. These are the best pencils I've used in the past 25 years. First the smell of them is incredible, takes you right back to school. The overall quality is amazing. USA made DOES matter. The quality of wood sharpens smoothly, the lead writes smoothly, and the eraser is excellent! It is such a pleasure buy a product and you can just tell that there is an attention to quality.
