About this deal

Available in packs of 10 erasers and in a choice of black, blue, green, grey, orange, pink, red, white and yellow colours. The first concepts for the rover’s robotic arm and zoom camera were drawn with Blackwing pencils at Motiv Space Systems, a fitting illustration of the pencil’s ability to help us reach for the stars.

Each pencil features a matte gray finish with dark writing on the barrel, inspired by the look of newsprint. comics evolved from a niche novelty to a respected medium of art and storytelling, deftly blurring the lines between pop culture and fine art. Our Blackwing Red pencil features a vivid red core that’s perfect for marking, editing, and sketching. Its gold barrel and shiny, black-striped gold ferrule are inspired by both the historic discovery of gold that set off the California Gold Rush and the eureka moments that bring clarity to the creative process.With an instantly recognizable semi-hexagonal body and interchangeable eraser, the original Blackwing 602 pencil has inspired the works of some of history's greatest artists, including Disney animator Shamus Culhane, who asked to be buried with his Blackwing 602. German architect Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus design school with the belief that “there is no essential difference between the artist and the artisan. In 2007, we introduced our Palomino range of pencils using Genuine Incense-cedar and premium Japanese graphite. As with all of the Blackwing pencils, the black matte option features the iconic square shape of the top-notch eraser, which handles mistakes with ease.

The original Blackwing was introduced in the 1930s by Eberhard Faber, a well-known pencil manufacturer (if the name reminds you of Faber-Castell, you’re not wrong—the two companies have historical family ties). This trade route allowed an unprecedented exchange of goods and cultural ideas between East and West for over a thousand years. Every Blackwing Natural features a gold imprint, grey eraser and the iconic square Blackwing ferrule. It’s a great sketching pencil and has the ability to draw lightly (like an H or HB) yet produce dark lines (like a 2B).The unusual ferrule (the metal bit that connects the pencil to the eraser) design made the pencils a collectors item when they got discontinued in 1998. Pencils are dedicated to Jackie Robinson and everyone else who inspires people to pursue their dreams regardless of the obstacles in their way.

Our One-Step Long Point Sharpener creates a long, curved point that looks beautiful and resists breakage. Inspired by the comparison, California Cedar acquired the Blackwing trademark and produced a pencil that married the original Blackwing’s look and feel with a softer lead and black barrel.Replacement erasers are available in cyan, magenta, yellow, and black—the primary colors of printing. They are unpainted and have clear matte finishes, letting you appreciate the natural color and pattern of the wood. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

The extra-firm graphite is ideal for writing notes, including those to your future self, whenever inspiration strikes. About Blackwing Desktop Pencil Sharpener The Blackwing Desktop Sharpener uses 2 helix blades to sharpen your pencils to perfection.As the sequence progresses, the ratios between the numbers get closer and closer to the Golden Ratio.
