Box of 12 Blackwing Pearl Palomino Pencil
The Maker: Having been a favorite of those from animator Chuck Jones to Truman Capote, Blackwing Pencils have become something of an iconic writing utensil. Praised in the New Yorker, The Boston Globe, and Boing Boing, they've come from a long-standing tradition of quality and are the first FSC-certified wood pencils.
The Work: The Palomino Blackwing Pearl is the latest addition to the Blackwing family of pencils. It features a pearl white finish, black imprint and eraser, and a balanced and smooth graphite core that is softer than the graphite found in the Palomino Blackwing 602, but firmer than the graphite found in the Palomino Blackwing (think of it as the "just right" of the Goldilocks three). Its unique and iconic ferrule allows you to extend and replace its eraser after extensive use.
