I'm looking for a fairly decent brand of wooden pencil, preferably Japanese or European as they would be easier for me to source. I'd like it just for some doodling, not hardcore art. The paper will be Life Noble (those thick-ish blue, brown, & orange notebooks).
I know next to nothing about pencil lead. I'd like something that 1.) won't rub off onto the opposing page, and 2.) will still stick around for a very long time. I can tolerate a lighter-colored line if it will meet those two criteria. Any suggestions?
