About pencil hardness grades:

A greater percentage of clay results in a harder pencil lead, and lead is graded by hardness. Pencils graded H, F, HB and B are of average hardness. Pencils ranging from 2B to 10B are softer and are used for sketching, while 2H to 10H pencils are harder than average. A common American #2 pencil is equivalent to an HB pencil.

These are the lead grades from hardest to softest:
10H | 9H | 8H | 7H | 6H | 5H | 4H | 3H | 2H | H | F | HB | B | 2B | 3B | 4B | 5B | 6B | 7B | 8B | 9B | 10B.

The harder the pencil the lighter the mark, and the softer B-grade leads tend to create darker colors and smear easily.

Very soft- to the point of being a bit crumbly-very blackest black you can get from graphite- exactly what would be expected from pure graphite. Lead is a bit thicker than other grades, to last longer. A lighter touch works best! Even just the weight of this pencil makes beautiful graphite lines. A very nice tool for fast gesture drawing- capturing the moment! Keep several at a time handy, so you don't have to keep sharpening just one.

Love these pencils!

I'd been wanting a smooth, super dark pencil for art classes and this one didn't disappoint. You can actually *feel* the quality of these pencils, they're nice and weighted unlike a lot of other graphite pencils. They're almost pitch black and so soft it's almost like drawing with a stick of butter.

Being a very soft lead, they do wear down very quickly (I've already used 1/5th of mine over two drawings), but it's a given.
