Iconic Palomino Blackwing Pearl Pencil - Softer than the 602, but firmer than the soft graphite Blackwing.
Some of the world’s most legendary Grammy, Emmy, Pulitzer and Academy Award winners have been created with Blackwing pencils. The list of known users includes John Steinbeck, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein and Chuck Jones, who proudly used Blackwings to create Bugs Bunny and countless other Looney Tunes characters.
Its roots go back to the 1930’s when it was first introduced by Eberhard Faber. In 1998, after several corporate acquisitions, it was discontinued, but not forgotten. In fact, fans began paying as much as $40 on eBay for a single Blackwing pencil.
Artists from across the world soon noticed that Palomino’s range of premium pencils provided a comparable performance to the Blackwing and asked them to consider reviving the iconic brand. Now remade to its original design, the Blackwing is again a firm favourite in any stationery lover's pencil case.
Claimed by many to be the best writing utensil in the world, Blackwing pencils are famous for the quality of graphite, iconic shape, replaceable eraser, and the men and women whose works they’ve inspired throughout the years.
Comes in a beautifully branded box of 12.
