Palomino Blackwing Pencils!

The Palomino Blackwing and Blackwing 602
Ahhh, the Blackwing Pencil.  A relic from another era. A casualty of corporate consolidation. Lucky for us and all others who still have a passion for the art of sketching and writing, Palomino, a sixth generation, family run, pencil manufacturer, put it on the line and brought this great pencil back to life.

With it's super smooth graphite and signature rectangle eraser it will quickly become a favorite in your drawing arsenal. How intense are people's love for the Blackwing?  There are entire blogs dedicated to the Blackwing, the pencils would sell for $40 or more on eBay. Don't believe me check out this great article from Fortune Magazine about this very subject.

We also recently picked up the Palomino Graphite "Orange" pencils. Available grades include 2H, H, HB, B, 2B, 4B & 6B. The coating has a smooth and comfortable feel to it and the graphite produces dark and even lines. Try em out!
