    I got told the other day that HB pencils ... ie HB1 HB2 HB3 etc , are a certain brinell hardness , if you sand the point flat , so you have a sharp edge , and then push it against the lead is it leaves a groove in the lead it is softer than that HB , go to the next HB and if it cant leave a groove it is that hardness ... you would have to look up the brinell hardness if each pencil
