This is such helpful information. Thank you for posting it. I knew a little about pencils from drawing, the difference between the grades and so on, but I never thought there was that much difference between one 2B and another 2B. You have taught me a great deal. I also never knew a 10B even existed and can’t wait to try one.

If I may, in the section of Blackwings, you mention “it’s unusual look”. You want “its unusual look”. “It’s” means “it is” and “its” means “belonging to it”. Like “his” and “hers” the possessive of “it” takes no apostrophe. And yes, I’ve spent that long reading and rereading this information to notice that.

Again, thank you very much for all this helpful pencil information.
