Blackwing Pearl Pencils, Balanced (Box of 12)
Box of 12 balanced graphite Blackwing pencils.
This Blackwing features a balanced and smooth graphite core that is softer than the graphite found in the firm Blackwing 602, but firmer than the graphite found in the soft Blackwing. It is finished with a pearl body and black eraser.
The iconic Blackwing pencils were first introduced in the 1930s by Eberhard Faber and were made famous by legendary Grammy, Emmy, Pulitzer and Academy Award winners such as John Steinbeck, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein and Chuck Jones, who proudly used Blackwings to create Bugs Bunny and countless other Looney Tunes characters. The brand was discontinued in 1998 but later revived in 2010 by Palomino.
Palomino Blackwings have replaceable erasers which you can customise or "hack” with replacements available in white, black and the traditional pink.
Box size: 22.4 x 7.0 x 1.9 cm.
