The Blackwing Rustic Box Set features 3 of each type of Blackwing’s iconic pencils: Blackwing 602 (firm but smooth), Blackwing Matte (soft), Blackwing Pearl (balanced), and Blackwing Natural pencils (extra firm). You can try out the variety of graphite cores and how they different on your favorite notebook. The box set also comes with the grey Two-Step Long Point Sharpener to use with the pencils. The aged pine box slides open to reveal the Blackwing pencils and a black cork-lined interior. You can use the box as a storage solution for small accessories too.
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.
