If it were purely a question of quality, I would give this product a 5/5 star rating. However, the cost of this lead ($3.30 for 15 sticks) makes it nearly a quarter for every stick of lead you use. I think the prices are too high.

The quality of the lead is outstanding. This lead rarely breaks, chips, or smears. The lead is quite noticeably darker than HB, something more in between what I would call B and 2B. Maybe we need to call it 1.5B (hahaha). But in all seriousness, if you're looking for a darker lead for every day writing, this lead isn't too soft at all for practical use.

I use this lead almost every day in Kokuyo notebooks, I find it improves my small handwriting and provides a darker line without being more difficult to erase whatsoever or more easily smudged.

This is strong lead to have. The lead is dark and doesn't smear easily. Though, the lead runs out quickly, which is expectant from a B type lead. I would recommend this lead to anyone who loves to write in 0.3mm. It's better used for drafting pencils in my opinion.

I love this lead. It does seem darker than some other B leads, but doesn't smudge and erases well. It has a greater "crispness" of line than the 2B, which is also nice.

I highly recommend this lead, even though it is awfully pricey.

This lead is smooth and fairly dark. I'm using it in an Orenz with an extendable pipe, so breakage isn't really an issue. I've been happy with Ain Stein in the past, and will continue to use it.
