Graphite Pencil Grade Scale

by Wendi OBrien

Ever wonder what those numbers and letters mean when you get a set of graphite pencils?

Well, find your answer here, in this video.

Keep in mind that not all pencils are created equal and with the lack of industry standard for the grades, each manufacturer’s grades may not be the same.

I will be doing a comparison of this exact fact in the future.

The key to finding the a good pencil is find a set and combination of pencils that feel good to you, move the way you want them to and give you the final appearance you are after.

There is no right or wrong here, just personal preference.

I recommend to always do a test of your pencils as I show here so you know exactly what to expect out of your pencils.
