Very smoothe, can be sharpened to a long point, but won't last long because it
is very soft. I see really no difference between this and the 9B or the Grafwood
9B. I prefer the 10B only because its slightly wider lead.
Really soft, black pencil that's perfect for quick sketches or even finished
work. It makes a dark line that can be scanned pretty easily if you start on
paper and finish digitally. Doesn't break when sharpening like other soft
