For many pencil lovers, nothing can beat the satisfying feel of a real wooden pencil. Hi-Uni is Uni Mitsubishi's best-selling highest-level wooden pencil line with an incredible selection of 22 hardness grades. The luxurious pencils write in rich, dark, and even lines. Beautiful to write with as well as look at, these wooden pencils will be a marvelous addition to your art tool collection.

This is a set of 12 unsharpened pencils in a plastic case.

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.

I prefer the Mitsubishi...

I prefer the Mitsubishi Hi-Uni 4H pencil for it's excellent point strength. I use it for all my sketching and rough drawings. The pencil can produce some darker lines than most other 4H pencils. The beautiful maroon varnish with gold lettering and black end cap make this, in my opinion, the highest-quality, most beautiful woodcase drawing pencil available. Japan's woodcase pencils are the best in the world and JetPens is great for carrying the full line of Mitsubishi Hi-Uni.
