HB is absolutely the best..
I have long since never been able to find the "perfect" drawing pencil that comes close. However... the open stock HB is the one I am talking about. The HB that comes in the set is different than the open stock HB. For some reason the HB that comes in the set is a bit softer than the HB that comes in open stock. The set leaves more graphite behind and smudges easier. I don't care for that particularly because I have an aversion to smudging with sketching pencils. I want something that will give me a good sketch that I can scan and not have a lot to clean up on computer. The open stock HB is the best for that, at least for me. I have 14 HB open stock pencils as I never wanna have to worry about not having one and every single one draws the same, but different than the one i got in the set. I don't know if its the packaging that changes the makeup of the graphite, and I contacted Derwent about it and they weren't sure which one is "correct". But I am very happy with the open stock HB as it's hard enough to not leave a lot of loose graphite, but not so hard that it scratches the paper.

Nice starter kit. A good variety of erasers and pencils. Just getting back into drawing and painting gave me the basic essentials.

MY #1 DRAWING TOOL
By Nj ARTIST
from Northern New Jersey
Many years ago I "discovered"Derwent Sketching Pencils . I enjoy drawing landscapes with them.I have found them to be of excellent quality,easy to sharpen and they fit comfortably in my hand. Sometimes they are the only pencil that I will take outdoors to sketch.I am able to create expressive lines and achieve a wide variety of tonal values. It would be nice if Derwent expanded the value range to include a 6B or 8B but I have found the HB, 2B and 4B to work out quite nicely for my needs. I am glad that I can count on Dick Blick to have these pencils in stock.
