Details

Blackwing Pencils are widely regarded as the finest pencil ever made, having accumulated a cult following since several eminent 20th century writers and artists used them. The list of known users includes John Steinbeck, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein and Chuck Jones (who proudly used Blackwings to create Bugs Bunny and numerous other Looney Tunes characters).  

Claimed by many to be the best writing utensil in the world, Blackwing pencils are famous for the quality of graphite, iconic shape, and the men and women whose works they’ve inspired throughout the years.

These are the first of the new Blackwings to be produced and are also the softest and darkest. Their soft lead cores are comparable to a 4B lead and are especially good for art. They can make light marks when used with a light touch, but are typically quite dark. Unlike some soft pencils, Blackwings do not crumble with use. They are very consistent and sharpen to a fine point. They feature a matte black body with a gold-colored ferrule and white eraser.

The erasers are replaceable and are much more efficient than standard pencil erasers due to their flat ends.
