History of the Blackwing Pencil

"Half the pressure, twice the speed"

These American-made pencils are considered to be one of the finest ever made and have something of a cult following. Discontinued in 1998, they soon became hot property on eBay with single pencils selling for $40 each. Brought back from extinction after petitions and protests in 2011, these are still made from the same Californian incense cedar with the finest Japanese-crafted graphite core. 

You really have to try these to appreciate their qualities!
