Blackwing pencils were favored by award-winning creators throughout the 20th century. Despite a cult following, they fell victim to cost cutting measures in the 1990s and were discontinued. That didn't stop devotees from paying as much as $40 per pencil to seize unused stock. In 2010, Palomino drew from nearly a century of experience in the pencil business to access the best materials in the world and bring Blackwing back for a new generation of writers, artists, and others seeking a more natural existence. Includes 12 soft graphite pencils with erasers.
