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.
Ideal for illustrators and musicians who prefer a soft, dark line, the Blackwing was launched by California Republic Stationers in October 2010 as a modern version of the iconic Eberhard-Faber Blackwing pencil that was favoured by artists such as Stephen Sondheim and Frank Lloyd Wright.
The pencil is made from FSC certified cedar, and features replaceable erasers.
Blackwing Pencils have various graphite hardness:
Matte - soft
Pearl - mid-weight
602 - firm
Natural - extra firm
Don't forget the Blackwing sharpener to ensure you get the most from your pencil, and extra erasers for backup!
