blackwing pencils

available in singles or in boxes of twenty, the iconic blackwing pencil comes in three varieties.

the original: ideal for illustrators and musicians who prefer a soft, dark line, the palomino blackwing original was launched in october 2010 as a modern version of the iconic eberhard faber blackwing pencil that was favored by artists such as stephen sondheim and chuck jones.  its unique ferrule allows you to extend and replace its eraser after extensive use.
the 602: praised by alex beam of the boston globe and mark frauenfelder of boing boing, among others, the palomino blackwing 602 features a firm and smooth graphite core that helps it deliver on its promise of “half the pressure, twice the speed.” 
the pearl: the palomino blackwing pearl is the latest addition to the blackwing family of pencils. it features a pearl white finish, black imprint and eraser, and a balanced and smooth graphite core that is softer than the graphite found in the palomino blackwing 602, but firmer than the graphite found in the palomino blackwing.
