January 22, 2012
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 pencils.

I have never been so...

Verified Purchase
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!
