Top lead in 4B (compares to 5 or 6B on other brands) and yes, at 4B it supposed
to smudge as anything above B grade is really designed for drawing where
smudging is desired in some techniques. For writing in general people should not
use anything above B grade.
It appears to me that this maybe the same lead used in famous Hi Uni Mitsubishi
I have never been so disappointed in a product before now. While I must admit
that this lead puts down a beautiful dark line, it has a penchant for smudging
really bad and breaks at every turn of the pencil. I had high hopes for this
lead but as I said, am disappointed. Coming from a product that normally sells
for about 3.00 for the same amount of lead to this at nearly 5.00 per tube?
What's the extra 2.00 for? Don't waste your money!
