Blackwing Soft Graphite Pencils (12 ct.)

The Blackwing Soft Graphite Pencil made by Palomino is a tribute to the iconic Eberhard-Faber Blackwing 602 originally popularized by famous writers like John Steinbeck. The Palomino Backwing is finely crafted from cedar wood, finished with a thick metallic black coating and embossed with gold lettering on the sides. However, the Blackwing is different from the 602 in a couple ways. Made with soft lead (instead of firm lead like the 602), it is best for illustrators and artists, but of course it can still be used by writers and everyday users. It also comes with a white rectangular eraser that pops out so you can replace it after whittling it down after drawing your masterpiece. Available in a box of 12 pencils, the Palomino Blackwing Soft Graphite Pencil is the ultimate go-to for artists and creatives.

Blackwing Soft Graphite Pencils (12 ct.)

Originally made by Eberhard-Faber and dating back to the 1930's, the Blackwing 602 Pencil quickly rose in prominence and was loved by multiple famous writers and illustrators.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, pencils, and more.
