Koh-I-Noor Progresso Graphite Pencils are made with five times more graphite than wood cased pencils. Coated in lacquer to keep artist hands clean, they create dense lines and glide smoothly across the paper when used on point or on their broad side. May be sharpened with any hand held or electric sharpeners.
The degree scale for pencils runs from B (blackness) which is the softest lead thus making the darkest line with least effort, to H (hardness) that holds the hardest lead for lighter lines. HB in the mid-range is similar to a #2 pencil.
Available from 8B-HB with 8B being the softest.
