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.

My new favorite! An absolutely great experience from this pencil. Easy to sharpen (to a nice sharp point I might add), and retains its point very well. I am also very happy that I got F instead of HB, which is my normal preference. I write in cursive, which normally wears the point down very quickly. However, I am proud to say I could write about another half a page (8.5 x 11" sized paper) without sharpening the point. A smooth writer, this pencil lays down a fairly dark line (comparable to most HB and even a few B pencils I use). Not bad at all. The finish on these pencils is fantastic. Thick lacquer with a great color. I won't be writing with anything else for a long time.

This is my everyday desk pencil. On the go I use a mechanical pencil, but when I'm at home I use Hi-Uni F wooden pencils for everyday work. I use the other grades for drawing, but this is fav for notes and general work.

My family and I took a vacation to San Francisco 3-1/2 years ago. I HAD to go to Japan Center for the shopping. At a stationers there, picked up a couple Uni pencils. In concert with the pads I bought, this was the smoothest writing pencil I had ever used. I have used many different brands and grades, and this pencil tops them all. A friend went to Tokyu Hands and bought me one of every grade, then I bought a dozen 'F' from JetPens. I hoard them.

The Hi-Uni F grade pencil is the finest writing pencil that I have ever had the pleasure to use. It sharpens easily to the finest point, with a long point sharpener, and the lead is the most durable long lasting and smoothest of any F grade wooden pencil that I've used so far with just a hint of give to follow the tooth of most any paper used. The marks this pencil leaves are as dark as most HB grade pencils but with a more commanding feel when I write, giving my writing styles more confidence and presence. For example I can get close to 6 pages of my 4mm high writing in a large Moleskine before I feel the need to sharpen, something no other writing pencil I've tried can accomplish.
