VS (1.5 mm) lead, one of the most commonly-used sizes for 19th-century mechanical pencils but long out of production and very tough to find. Hardness is HB.

OUT OF STOCK


True 1.0 mm lead is not easy to find; as far as we can tell, all current-production pencil lead sold as 1.0mm is actually 0.9mm. This lead can be used in Victorian pencils and to refill early production Parker repeater pencil converters for ballpoints. It can also be adapted for use in 19th-century pencils made to use M (1.05 mm) lead -- one of the lead sizes most commonly used in that era and now virtually impossible to find. Our true 1.0 mm lead will fit most M nozzles a bit loosely. A thin coat of shellac will bring the lead right up to 1.05 mm, or it can be rubbed with beeswax to hold it in place.
