In the world of Japanese pencils, it's believed that softer pencils are the best ones to learn how to write with because they require applying less pressure, which totally makes sense! The Beginning Pencil takes this idea to an extreme, as it's THE softest grade on the pencil grading scale. Whether you're using a 10B to practice writing or using it to draw, this pencil is a true-to-scale, buttery-smooth graphite treat. Beware: 10B pencils have an extremely high graphite content, so expect this pencil to be messy (you know, in a fun way).
