The Blackwing 602 pencil was first introduced in the 1930’s by Eberhard Faber and was the pencil of choice for Oscar, Grammy, and Pulitzer Prize winners throughout the 20th century. After it was discontinued in the 1990’s, fans began paying as much as $40 per pencil to seize unused stock.
In 2010, Palomino, whose industry roots were planted over a century ago, revived the Blackwing to much critical acclaim.
Every pencil is made of graphite and wood. Only Blackwing pencils combine the best graphite in the world, the best wood in the world, and generations of craftsmanship to create an exceptional pencil. When you’re looking for the perfect pencil to write a song, sketch a landscape or brainstorm a business idea, look for Blackwing’s distinct rectangular eraser.
