Pencil Lead Hardness (from Wikipedia)

Pencil lead is graded by hardness: a greater percentage of clay results in a harder lead. H (harder), F, HB and B (softer) are pencils of average hardness. Pencils ranging from 2B to 9B are softer still and are used for sketching; 2H to 9H are harder than average. A common American #2 pencil is equivalent to HB.

In order, the leads are (from hardest to softest) 9H | 8H | 7H | 6H | 5H | 4H | 3H | 2H | H | F | HB | B | 2B | 3B | 4B | 5B | 6B | 7B | 8B | 9B.

The harder the pencil the lighter the mark, e.g. Bs tend to a create darker colour that can be smeared easily.

The tubes the lead comes...
Verified Purchase
The tubes the lead comes in is kind of fun at first but when it comes down to it they are over-engineered and sometimes annoying to get lead in or out of. Other than that the lead works great and you get a good amount for a great price.
