Palomino Blackwing 602 Pencils (12 Pack)
The iconic Blackwing 602 that once commanded up to $40/pencil and was favored by famous writers like John Steinbeck is back. The Palomino Blackwing 602 features a firm and smooth graphite core that is ideal for writers and everyday users who don’t like to sharpen often. Includes Blackwing’s signature pink extendable eraser and unique ferrule design. Inspired by the past, made for the writers of tomorrow. Each box contains 12 firm and smooth premium graphite pencils, crafted from Genuine Incense-cedar.
With a retro look that is decidedly fresh, the Palomino Blackwing pencil pays tribute to the grand-daddy of legendary pencils, the Eberhardt-Faber Blackwing 602. Blackwing pencils have sketched, written and composed their way across the American cultural landscape. This soft and smooth graphite core is the ideal gift for artists, musicians or anyone who sometimes seeks a more natural existence. The graphite core is the softest out of the standard Blackwing pencils.
The Palomino Blackwing Pearl is the latest addition to the Blackwing family of pencils and lifestyle products. It features a pearl white finish, gold imprint, white eraser, and a “balanced” graphite core that is softer than the Blackwing 602, but firmer than the graphite found in the Palomino Blackwing. Its unique ferrule allows you to extend and replace the eraser after extensive use and even “hack” your pencil to give it a custom look.
Each box contains 12 balanced and smooth premium graphite pencils, crafted from Genuine Incense-cedar.
