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 pencils are the hardest of the Blackwings and are more suited to writing, rather than drawing, although both are possible. The lead is smoother than a typical writing pencil is similar to a 2B lead. This is the pencil that is closest to the original Eberhard Faber Blackwing. In tribute, it reprises the slogan “Half the Pressure, Twice the Speed” on the barrel. The Blackwing 602 pencil has a pearlescent grey finish with a gold ferrule and black eraser.
The erasers are replaceable and are much more efficient than standard pencil erasers due to their flat ends.
