Default Cleaning pencil?

Hey all, my wife and I saw a Hoover Boys episode where they used a cleaning pencil set purchased from France, I think they're called Andre's Pencils. We followed the link to this website and wondered if anyone here has ever used these? A little spendy maybe, but hey I metal detect for fun right? I'd be curious about your results/ thoughts. Certainly I've got enough old crusty coins to give it challenge.

Don't clean valuable coins is all Imma say!

I know I ruined a shield nickel by cleaning it. Would have been much easier to see detail had I left the dirt on

Has anyone used one of these, and if so what were your results and conclusions?
