Grafwood is an 8-ply graphite pencil available in 15 gradations (4H - 9B). The diameter of the Grafwood cores varies. The harder grades have thinner cores for fine lines and the softer grades are thicker for sketching and shading. Generally, when you buy a Grafwood pencil you're getting 25% more materials than with a traditional pencil. Grafwood pencils have a maximum diameter of 8.20 mm. When an artist begins using the full range of Caran d'Ache graphite gradations they quickly learn to appreciate the silky smooth texture.
