Palomino Blackwing - 12 Ct. Black Gift Box
The next chapter of the Blackwing pencil has been written. In the hands of giants like Frank Lloyd Wright, Stephen Sondheim, John Steinbeck and Chuck Jones, they have helped create more timeless works of art than possibly any other creative tool in modern history. Eberhard Faber introduced the Blackwing pencil in the 1930's. In 1998, after several corporate acquisitions, it was discontinued. But certainly was not forgotten. In fact, fans began paying as much $40 on eBay for a single Blackwing pencil. In 2010, Charles Berolzheimer, a sixth generation pencileer, revived this iconic pencil, both in its original form for devotees, writers and everyday users, as well as a modified version with a slightly softer lead for artists. No matter what your discipline, these tools will help you create your own legacy of greatness.
Ideal for illustrators and musicians who prefer a soft, dark line, the Palomino Blackwing was launched by California Republic Stationers in October 2010 as a modern version of the iconic Eberhard-Faber Blackwing pencil that was favored by artists such as Stephen Sondheim and Frank Lloyd Wright.
