Unfortunately, we do not sell replacement caps for our pencils.
To recognize hardness or softness of the lead, drawing pencils will have a grade with the letter B or H and a number. B is a subjective indication of ‘blackness’ and H is a subjective indication of ‘hardness’. Therefore, 4B would produce a thick black line and the point would wear down extremely quickly, while 6H would produce a thin grey line, and hold a point much longer. HB is a theoretical middle point between 4B and 6H.
0.3mm lead produces an extra-fine line which is ideal for writing intricate, small details.
This is primary lead for drafting and engineering applications.
0.5mm lead produces a fine line and is the most popular, widely-used lead size.
This lead size is ideal for accounting and general writing applications such as notes, letters, etc.
0.7mm lead produces a medium line and is ideal for students or heavy-handed writers.
It works well for all general writing such as notes, letters, etc.
0.9mm lead produces a thick line.
Because of the wide diameter, it breaks less and is ideal for first time merchanical pencil users and heavy-handed writers.
Our refill lead is made from graphite. It does not contain actual lead.
