4B is the darkest on JetPens. I tried to find an official site, but gave up after wading through a couple of pages of Google results.

Anyone have any experience with the June Gold 2mm lead available on Amazon?


$5 for 108 pieces of either HB or 2B seems like a tremendous deal, but only if the lead is actually good enough to use. Once I'm allowed to go back to the office (stupid pandemic!), I plan to give lead holders to my coworkers that currently use wooden pencils and I'd like to have a stash of lead for them.


I've perused the amazon reviews and people who get the HB seem to have trouble with the leads arriving broken, but I didn't see any complaints at all about the 2B.


Edit: I was filtering wrong. There are amazon reviews about the 2B breaking during shipment, but it still seems to be less of an issue with the 2B than the HB.




June gold is garbage. Positively unpleasant to use. Scratchy, inconsistent, not a clean or smooth line, and the colored leads are just held together by thoughts and prayers.

Selling a boatload of restored, fairly rare, vintage Japanese gold nib pens, click here to see (more added as I finish restoring them)

Good to know! Thank you!


Any opinion on the Mr Pen leads? 96 leads for $5 is about the same deal...same garbage lead?
