General Pencil - Woodless Graphite Pencil - 8B - Made of pure graphite in a convenient pencil shape and size, these pencils contain everything you want, and nothing you dont! They are perfect for creating broad strokes and crisp edges, and they can also produce thin lines and render details as you draw or sketch. Sharpen them in a handheld sharpener without the mess of wood shavings. These pencils come pre-sharpened. HB is the hardest, and 8B is the softest.
