Legendary Blackwing Pencils offer the user an enhanced writing experience. The smooth writing graphite, coupled with the unique design of the pencil make for a truly unique experience. The pencil developed a cult following, and was the preferred pencil of Leroy Jones, John Steinbeck as well as other artistic and literary giants.
Blackwing pencils are crafted using the best materials in the world: Genuine Incense-cedar and premium Japanese graphite.
The Blackwing 602 pencil was 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.
