I have a set of water soluble pencils (specifically Cretacolor Artino Graphite Set 10). I have no interest in using them with water for now - are there any downsides to using them as regular pencils? Any noticeable difference?
I found a related question for color pencils, but I think they behave differently than graphite:
Does it make sense to use water color pencils instead of normal color pencils for dry coloring?
