I'd like to update my older review: I contacted Caran d'Ache concerning why the 6b Grafstone seemed lighter than their 6b Grafwood. The representative informed me that it was due to the width of the lead: That is a thinner lead transfers more force at the point where the pencil meets the paper, creating a darker line because more graphite is laid down. A thicker lead thus requires more pressure, because it is more blunt. Therefore, when attempting to create a dark line with the Grafstone pencil, it appears that the graphite is being used up quicker because more pressure is needed. At least that's how I understood it.

I was expecting the same quality of graphite as in the Grafwood pencils, but this graphite stick (pencil) is not as dark as the Grafwood 6b. I have also noticed that Grafwood 6b lead (the lead inside the wood casing) seems to last longer than this Grafstone pencil--that is comparing sharpened tips of equivalent lengths. So, though this Grafstone pencil will last longer than a Grafwood pencil (because there is more graphite), it appears that it is softer without being darker than the 6b Grafwood pencil. Hmmmm. I won't be buying these again.

This is the first time I have tried this pencil & it is among my favourites already. For smooth even tones there is nothing better & a very good range of tones from light to dark. It also works on lots of different cartridges with either smooth or textured surfaces so it is very useful in many ways.
