All Rustic Boxes now come with the Grey Two-Step Long Point Sharpener.

Claimed by many to be the best writing utensil in the world, Blackwing pencils are famous for the quality of graphite, iconic shape, and the people whose works they’ve inspired throughout the years.

All Blackwing pencils use high quality graphite leads produced exclusively in Japan. In general, Palomino graphite pencils are much smoother than more commonly available pencils due to the special formulation and processing methods used in the manufacturing process. Japanese consumers also prefer a darker and softer laydown so all Japanese-produced leads tend to be a bit softer and darker along the HB grading scale. This leads to differences of 1 to 2 degrees versus what you might be used to in other pencils.

Pencil cores are rated on a scale that corresponds to the hardness or softness of the graphite. A harder pencil core will make a lighter mark on paper, while a softer core deposits more graphite material on the paper and, thus, leaves a darker mark. Softer pencils will dull more quickly than harder leads and require more frequent sharpening. To find more information about how pencils cores are graded, click here. Blackwing pencils are made out of 100% Genuine Incense-cedar wood. Genuine Incense-cedar sharpens quickly and evenly, giving the pencil a smooth, sharp point (and it smells great too!).

 

The Blackwing Matte Black pencil features a matte black finish, gold imprint, black eraser, and soft and smooth graphite core that is perfect for artists and musicians. (approx. 4B) Ideal for musicians, woodworkers and anyone who prefers a soft, dark line, the Palomino Blackwing is the softest of the four core Blackwing models. Blackwing Black Matte pencils come in a box of 12 that can double as a pencil cup.


The Blackwing 602 features a grey finish, gold imprint, black eraser, and firm and smooth graphite core for writers and everyday users. Praised in the New Yorker, The Boston Globe, and Boing Boing among others, the Palomino Blackwing 602 features a firm and smooth graphite core that helps it deliver on its promise of “Half the Pressure, Twice the Speed.” (approx. B hardness) Blackwing 602 pencils feature a gunmetal grey finish and iconic square Blackwing ferrule with a pink eraser. Blackwing 602 pencils come in a box of 12.

A favorite of calligraphers and illustrators, the Blackwing Pearl includes a balanced and smooth graphite core that is softer than the graphite found in the Blackwing 602, but firmer than the graphite found in the Blackwing Matte. Each pencil features a classic pearl white finish, iconic square Blackwing ferrule and white eraser. (approx. 3B) Comes in a 12-pack gift box that doubles as a pencil cup.

The Blackwing Natural pencil contains a popular extra-firm graphite that works well for extended writing and detailed line work. (approx. HB) Each pencil features an exposed Incense-cedar barrel with a subtle clear matte finish, iconic square Blackwing ferrule and grey eraser. Blackwing Natural pencils come in a 12-pack gift box that doubles as a pencil cup.
