This tin of Derwent Graphic Pencils contains 12 hard grade pencils from a B to a 9H. The higher the number, the harder the pencil and the lighter the shade of graphite.
Hard graphite pencils are best for technical drawing as they can be sharpened to a fine point that lasts longer than soft pencils and are less smudgy. For technical drawings you want precision and accuracy and hard drawing pencils are best for this.
The hexagonal barrel is easy to hold and the pencil sharpens to a good point to cover all your drawing and sketching needs.
Whatever your drawing style or media preference, you’ll need some traditional, high quality graphite pencils.
