Once favored by the likes of John Steinbeck, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein and Chuck Jones, the legendary Blackwing pencil achieved cult status after manufacturing was discontinued in the 1990s. (Devotees are said to have paid as much as $40 per pencil on eBay for deadstock Blackwings before the brand was revived by Palomino in 2010.) The Palomino Blackwing 602 pencil features a gunmetal grey finish and iconic square Blackwing ferrule with a pink eraser. Premium quality incense-cedar barrel, Japanese graphite. Made in Japan. Pack of 12.
