THE STORY OF THE $40 PENCIL.
The Blackwing pencil was introduced in the 1930′s by Eberhard Faber and was the pencil of choice for Oscar, Grammy, and Pulitzer Prize winners throughout the 20th century. After it was discontinued in the 1990′s, fans began paying as much as $40 per pencil to seize unused stock.
In 2010, Palomino, whose industry roots were planted over a century ago, revived the Blackwing to much critical acclaim.
“The Palomino Blackwing 602 is my new pencil of choice.”
““…the Blackwing 602, without question among the most fetishized writing instruments of all time.” “
“In its 80 years, the Blackwing has become a talisman of creative success.”
