Beautiful to write with as well as look at, these wooden pencils will be a marvelous addition to your art tool collection.

This pencil comes unsharpened.

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.

This pencil writes beautifully, and after multiple sharpenings, it's still close to the length of an unsharpened pencil (meaning it sharpens well). Nice dark color that writes very smooth.

Great wood pencil that gives you very pristine lines.
Good for heavy handed artists because it takes some force to get it to draw a 2B dark line.
I recommend a harder pencil if you are more light handed! 3B or harder should be good.
Honestly makes great lines.
