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 is the softest of the core Blackwing models and features a timeless matte black finish, iconic square Blackwing ferrule, and black eraser. Premium quality incense-cedar barrel, Japanese graphite. Made in Japan. Pack of 12.
