About this deal

Blackwing pencils feature a timeless matte black finish, iconic square Blackwing ferrule and black eraser. The Palomino Blackwing is the softest pencil in the Blackwing portfolio and comes in a box of 12 pencils. 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. Claimed by many to be the best writing utensil in the world, Blackwing pencils are famous for the quality of graphite, iconic shape, replaceable eraser, and the men and women whose works they’ve inspired throughout the years.

Each pencil features a specially designed eraser, deemed more efficient than standard round pencil erasers on other pencils due to their uniquely shaped flat ends. Crafted out of lightweight aluminum, the Point Guard goes over the point of your Blackwing pencil, keeping it safe in your bag, pocket, or pencil roll. The original Blackwing pencil was introduced in the 1930s and was available up until 1988, when it was discontinued.the eraser housing is slightly wider than the body of the pencil, to prevent the pencil from rolling away. Pencils are dedicated to the graduates of the Bauhaus school and their passion for beauty, practicality, and craftsmanship that left an indelible mark on the world of art and design. Its firm cover is paired with a soft, dual-sewn spine, ribbon bookmark, and built-in pencil loop that comes equipped with a Blackwing pencil.

Each pencil features a raised polyhedron design inspired by gaming dice and our firm graphite that is perfect for keeping track of hit points, or tallying a final score. When the machine that made the custom Blackwing ferrules broke, demand was so low that it did not make sense to repair it. Pencils are inspired by one of Kent’s most iconic works: the “rainbow swash” painted on the side of a natural gas storage container in Boston that is still visible from Interstate 93. About Blackwing Handheld Eraser Refill Blackwing have taken the iconic design of their eraser clip and adapted it into a sleek handheld form that feels great to use!The pencil’s unusual five-sided shape represents a play on the word gōkaku which means “passed” (in the sense of passing a test) in Japanese, and gokakukei the Japanese word for “pentagon.
