I am a pencil lead fanatic...
October 27, 2012
I am a pencil lead fanatic and have tried all the lead on the hardness scale. In
my opinion, 3B provides the perfect balance of dark lines, smooth writing and
hardness. 4B smudges a bit too much and 2B is a bit too light and doesn't write
smoothly enough. 3B can still smudge but only a small amount. 4B smudges a bit
more than I liked (although I loved writing with it.)
3B will be my lead of choice from here on.
