Crafted using the finest materials, from its woodcasing to its graphite core, Blackwing pencils truly are in a league of their own.

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.

They're now back, thanks to Palomino.

Available in 3 variations:

602:  Features a firm and smooth graphite core.

Black:  Ideal for illustrators that love a soft, dark line.  Launched in October 2010 as a modern version of the iconic Eberhard Faber Blackwing 602.

Pearl:  The latest addition to the Blackwing family featuring a pearl white finish, black imprint and eraser.  The graphite core is softer than the graphite found in the 602, yet firmer than the graphite in the Black.
