Default Andres pencils

Does anyone use these to clean coins and buttons? If so pros and cons please?

I don't use them but I've seen pictures of coins that were cleaned with them. It seems to me that they are very abrasive but if the coin isn't valuable I see no harm in using them.

I've had a set for a year or so. You might be able to effectively use them with a light touch and practice, but I've only ever used them to "brute strength" a date off of a coin or similar. Seems like I paid around $20 or so for the 4 pencils in a round plastic sleeve. I would encourage anybody to get a set, for those times you need a precise scraping instrument.

I have probably used the steel wool pencil the can make an iffy date on a cent come right through the grime.
