Blackwing Slate Journal (5 x 8.25)

Originally made by Eberhard-Faber and dating back to the 1930's, the Blackwing 602 Pencil quickly rose in prominence and was loved by multiple famous writers and illustrators. By the late 1990's it had been discontinued, but not forgotten - the 602 had reached cult status. So much so, that Palomino founder and CEO Charles Berolzheimer, whose pencil industry roots date back to the mid 19th century, re-introduced the Blackwing pencil, both in its original form (Blackwing 602) for devotees, writers and everyday users, as well as a modified version with a slightly softer lead for artists (Blackwing). Best of all, Palomino developed the Blackwing brand to now include sketchbooks, notebooks, sharpeners, and more.
