Well from my last purchase I had counted and there were a wopping 72 in a single box.
Well I could tell it's definitely not made out of number two as it didn't smell
Well I mean you could color it yourself if you want a color other than orange.
Yes unless you get the bad egg out of the bunch and you may only get 71, or you may get lucky and get 73 of them instead.
The are quality carpenter /other pencils I don't see why not
The one I purchased had no lead at all. Be wary when pruchasing
