Q&A (2)
Q What pencil grade do I need?
A

Graphite pencils come in various weights and are graded from H (Hard) to B (Black). H pencils will tend to be used by architects, graphic designers and artists who illustrate fine details. The hardness of the graphite allows the pencil to make precise markings with little smudging. B pencils will tend to be used by artists for sketching. The soft lead is easily blend able and can be used to create shading and achieve tonal effects. Soft graphite is easy to smudge which is often used as an effect when drawing.

Q Are pencils graded universally?
A

All graphite pencils are graded from H (Hard) to B (Black). However, these grades are not strictly universal. For example, some brands may use a softer graphite during their manufacturing process than others. However, these differences are slight and the choice between which brands to buy will mostly come down to personal preference.

15th September 2016 Reviewed by Adam Willis Just for the record, the pencils are great. I've ordered the set before and have been brilliant. Great quality graphite and a very comfortable grip. What let it down this time is the sharpener that comes with the set. Normally it's a wide metal sharpener which does the job well. This time it was a crappy plastic one that the pencils couldn't fit into. Being an illustrator that goes through a sharpener a month it's not good to put cheap low quality components into a kit that says otherwise. Bad form Derwent.
