The Blackwing Pearl pencil is a favorite of calligraphers and illustrators. The balanced and smooth graphite core is slightly firmer than the graphite found in Blackwing Matte. It makes a consistent line while keeping a good tip for longer use. The writing experience of pencil on MD paper is guaranteed to be a satisfying one. Each pencil features a classic pearl white finish, iconic square Blackwing ferrule and white eraser. They come in in a 12-pack gift box that also doubles as a pencil cup.
Blackwing pencils were originally introduced by the Eberhard Faber Pencil Company in the 1930s. Favored by authors and artists like John Steinbeck and Chuck Jones, the Blackwing 602 pencil had a cult following since it started. In 2007, Blackwing went through a revival by introducing the Palomino range using incense-cedar and premium Japanese graphite. Known for its soft, dark graphite and unique flat square ferrule, Blackwing continues to innovate outside the box by re-inventing what people think about pencils. Today, Blackwing continues to win the hearts of artists, writers, and musicians alike.
