Ideal for illustrators and musicians who prefer a soft, dark line. The Palomino Blackwing was launched in October 2010 as a modern version of the iconic Eberhard Faber pencil that was favored by artists such as Stephen Sondheim and Chuck Jones. Palomino Blackwings boast a sophisticated matte black finish and the iconic ferrule gives the pencil its unique look and houses a replaceable eraser. This set includes 12 Blackwing pencils with erasers.
The Blackwing's genuine incense-cedar is sustainably harvested, so it's as good for the planet as it will be for your work. Writers may find the firm performance of the Blackwing 602 is better suited to their needs.
Palomino is a division of California Cedar Products Company, the world’s leading supplier of wooden pencil slats. Cal Cedar has a rich history of developing extraordinary products through six generations of family stewardship.
When the original Blackwing Pencil, first introduced by Eberhard Faber in the 1930's, was discontinued, devotees were at a loss. It wasn't long before individual pencils were selling for as much as $40 on eBay. Recognizing the unparalleled quality of Palomino's products, Blackwing fans approached the company with the suggestion that they revive the iconic brand. The rest of the company's history, of course, is written in beautiful Blackwing graphite. Read more about the Blackwing story at Blackwing602.
