Premium graphite formulation Blackwing pencils from Palomino are THE original Blackwing pencils.
Ideal for illustrators and musicians who prefer a soft, dark line, the Palomino 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.
Made in Japan with FSC-certified cedarwood, it is amazingly smooth and beautiful. Palomino IS the world’s best pencil.
The Blackwing is recommended for drawing, sketching and shading. If you want a Writing pencil, check out the Palomino Blackwing 602.
