Blackwing Pencils
  • Blackwing Pencils

    Blackwing Pencils have an extra long hexagonal barrel made out of California incense cedar and special formulated leads from Japan. They represent undeniable quality, offering an exceptional balance of smooth performance, dark intense lead laydown and sharpness. Consistent and reliable performance despite the softer leads they will still sharpen to a fine point.

    • The "Black" Blackwing is a unique soft, dark lead that feels similar to a 4B lead, but they can also make light marks - ideal for artists.
    • The "Pearl" Blackwing is still soft and dark but more comparable with a 3B lead and ideal for people who want a smooth pencil that stays sharp longer. Ideal for those who want the flexibility to write and draw with it.
    • The "Natural" Blackwing is part of the everyday range of Blackwing Pencils and features an exposed incense-cedar barrel with a subtle clear matte finish, gold ferrule and grey eraser. Contains an extra firm smooth graphite core.
    • The "602" Blackwing is suited to writing but is much smoother than a typical writing pencil and similar to a 2B lead.
    • The Volume 840 Blackwing Pencil pays homage to surf icon Duke Kahanamoku, who popularised the ancient art of surfing on the beaches of southern California after the first wave of popularity hit the beaches on the coast of northern California in 1907. The Volume 840 pencil features a sea-green barrel with a gold foil accent in the shape of the California coastline. The lead is a balanced graphite and as with other Blackwing pencils has a replaceable eraser. Made in Japan using genuine FSC-certified Incense-cedar barrel.
