We didn't stock regular pencils, long believing that a good mechanical pencil was far superior than sharpening a twig. Then I was given a Blackwing to try. I was wrong, and we got them in. The smoothness of the writing is unrivaled.
This is the modern reincarnation of the famous Eberhard-Faber Blackwing 602. Ideal for writing and sketching because of its ability to hold a point, the original 602 was favoured by famous writers such as John Steinbeck, as well as more modern writers.
The pencil is made from FSC certified cedar, and features replaceable erasers.
The Blackwing Volumes are limited edition pencils celebrating the people, places and events that have defined our creative culture. The Blackwing Vol 6 supports the Small Busines relief Fund as they work to help small busiensses keep their lights on. In 1912 French engineer Georges Claude installed the world's first neon sign above a barbershop in Paris. His vibrant tuular lights soon adorned the storefronts of small businesses around the world, and symbolised the entrepreneurial drive that formed the backbone of their communities. The Blackwing Vol 6 collection includes Neon Red and Neon Blue pencils (sold separately) have a soft graphite hardness and are inspired by the iconic neon "Open" sign.
Don't forget the Palomino sharpener to ensure you get the most from your pencil, and extra erasers for backup!
