This lead is darker and...
November 6, 2013
This lead is darker and softer than your average 2h pencil.
That said, this is the perfect pencil for me. I used to do roughs with a 2h
then finalize the linework with an F. Now I just use this one pencil, as a
lighter touch will give you a nice light line, and a but of pressure gives you a
darker line, without digging too much into the bristol board. The lead is
smooth and not very greasy so it makes inking over easy and painless, and you
still get the benefits of a stiff 2h lead for sturdy lines.
