The next chapter of the Blackwing pencil has been written. In the hands of giants like Frank Lloyd Wright, Stephen Sondheim, John Steinbeck and Chuck Jones, they have helped create more timeless works of art than possibly any other creative tool in modern history. Eberhard Faber introduced the Blackwing pencil in the 1930's. In 1998, after several corporate acquisitions, it was discontinued. But certainly was not forgotten. In fact, fans began paying as much $40 on eBay for a single Blackwing pencil. In 2010, Charles Berolzheimer, a sixth generation pencileer, revived this iconic pencil, both in its original form for devotees, writers and everyday users, as well as a modified version with a slightly softer lead for artists. No matter what your discipline, these tools will help you create your own legacy of greatness. Palomino Blackwing 602 high-quality graphite pencils. FIRM & SMOOTH premium graphite formulation.
