I got a couple of these to pair with a gift of new simulated leather quad scriptures. I remember using these in seminary all the time! I love how they have red and blue, because I prefer to color code my scripture marking. They mark clearly, and they have definitely proven to be a great tool for everyday study. Just remember to have a separate scripture pencil eraser, as these pencils don't have one. I don't think that will be a huge problem. I also like how these pencils don't require you to apply a ton of pressure. They're softer leaded pencils meant to be used without a whole ton of force or scribbling. I doubt anyone will, but it's something I thought I would put out there. I'm thinking of buying a few more for myself as well plus a few other things for my gift stash.
