This set comes with a round metal tube that keeps the pencils tidy and safe.
Purchased for architecture school. I upgraded to these after trying Prismacolors. The Carans are MUCH better. The wood quality is superb, with a smooth grain and easy sharpening. I probably would not pay so much for these if they were just for recreational purposes, but the price is well worth it for serious artists or professionals.
