The Blackwing pencil was introduced in the 1930′s by Eberhard Faber and was the pencil of choice for Oscar, Grammy, and Pulitzer Prize winners throughout the 20th century. After it was discontinued in the 1990′s, fans began paying as much as $40 per pencil to seize unused stock. In 2010, Palomino revived the Blackwing. Now, Blackwing is back for a new generation of artists, writers, musicians, and people who appreciate the craftsmanship of a well-made good.

It features a balanced and smooth graphite core that has been described as like "writing with butter". The lead is soft - and has the ability to be light or dark, depending on pressure. Innovative extendable eraser design.
