For charting, sketching, knitting notations, musings and memos, keep these classics close at hand. Beautiful by design and engineered for performance, Blackwing® pencils are a recent revival of a cult following that began in the 1930's.
The casing is made from sustainably-harvested California incense cedar with a finish applied in multiple coats to prevent fading and flaking. The Japanese graphite/clay core delivers optimum lines: "Half the pressure, twice the speed." With an extendable, replaceable eraser in an iconic ferrule.
Sold in boxes of 12 in three hardnesses. Blackwing (black): soft and smooth for artists and musicians. Blackwing 602 (grey): firm and smooth for writers. Blackwing Pearl (white): balanced and smooth for everyday use. (You can find the Blackwing pencil sharpener here and replacement erasers here.)
