Nitram Academie Fusains Charcoal is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unusual Form but Great Product I bought the 8mm batons moyens from another site, but I see that there are no reviews here for this brand yet . The batons are not really vine/willow, but not quite compressed, either. The sticks are definitely molded as there are seam lines, but the texture and finish is more like willow charcoal. This is very soft, but not dark. You can get a range of grays, but it would take a lot of layering to get close to black. The item lives up to the Nitram claims- no crumbling or skipping, velvety texture, and very little dust for a willow-ish form of charcoal. Unlike many willow sticks, the Nitram will not disappear once you blend or smudge it, but it does blend easily. The sticks are long, and despite their softness, they are strong and can hold a point as long as you rotate the stick while you work. These are not nearly as messy as other charcoals, and I only get it on my hands when I rub on the drawing. Very little comes off just from holding the stick and drawing with it. I have to scrub my hands after using my other charcoals. I think the Academie Fusains (soft, med, hard) may be more like standard compressed charcoal, but I would not know until I try those. You are not paying too much for the Nitram, in my opinion, because the sticks are much longer than other brands, and the box of 5 is more like 10 regular sticks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I am not a fan. The director of the atelier where I study classical drawing recommends Nitram charcoal. I have tried all of the hardness categories of Nitram. Except for the softest sticks (the ones in the yellow wrappers/box) they all have dead spots, are scratchy, and skip. These sticks are way too expensive to have to throw out parts of each stick in order to get to a usable part. I gave all my unused Nitram to a fellow student who says that she has gotten used to them. I'll skip the learning curve and stay with tried and true real vine and willow.
