Dramatically dark graphite, even darker than a 9B

Onyx Pencils

Feeling moody? Look no further, Derwent Onyx is our blackest graphite pencil, even darker than a 9B!  Great on its own for drawing really moody pictures or use it with other graphite media like Graphic or Sketching pencils to add dense shade and tone.

We have created two tones, medium and dark, but it is easy to build up darker shades if you need them by increasing the pressure. The wide strip can be easily sharpened and will hold a fine point, perfect for capturing the detail in drawings!

Artist recommended

“Onyx pencils are the perfect balance of dark, strong graphite that enable me to achieve stunning deep shades whilst being able to sharpen to precision; particularly useful for detailed drawing when you need the extra depth…A staple item for all art kits.”
