The legendary Palomino Blackwing is made in Japan from cedarwood and high-quality graphite.
It's been the chosen pencil of pop-culture icons from Truman Capote to Quincy Jones.
The Palomino Blackwing 602 is the modern reincarnation of the famous Eberhard-Faber Blackwing 602. It's a firm graphite lead that is designed for writing.
The special-formula graphite lead behaves like a B lead but varies in appearance according to pressure - from HB (firm) lead to 4B (soft) lead. It has a precise point with good point retention and makes a dark grey line.
Its motto is emblazoned on the barrel - Half the pressure, twice the speed - and this is a great description of the writing experience. The barrel is long and sleek, with a characteristic rectangular replaceable eraser.
Blackwing make pencils, notebooks and tools for creative-minded people, and others looking to unplug once in a while.
Whether in the form of vinyl records and print books, or film cameras and worn-down pencils, the team at Blackwing think there’s something in the tactile feel of an analogue tool that is in our DNA.
Blackwing try to tap into that feeling in our everyday lives by making things with our hands, and by valuing the creative process as much as the result.
