But it's a great pencil. It is nicely finished in a shiny dark grey with gold stamping on a hexagonal barrel. It says "Palomino Blackwing 602" on one side and "Half the pressure, Twice the speed" on the opposite side. That's the Blackwing's old tagline. It is topped by the Blackwing's iconic rectangular ferrule, which holds a replaceable, adjustable black eraser. Some people think this bulky ferrule makes the pencil top-heavy. Others absolutely love the thing. I am in the latter category. The ferrule prevents the pencil from rolling. The shape makes it possible to erase in a relatively thin line. And it makes the Blackwing easy to spot. The Palomino Blackwing 602 comes with a sleek black eraser, where its forebear had a pink eraser. The black eraser looks great. And you can always change it for pink, white, blue, green, or orange, available from Palomino.
Blackwing pencils have always been ungraded, but the Palomino Blackwing 602 is comparable to a #1 or a B grade.Read more ›
We live on a very tight budget and non-necessary items are few and far between so... when I spent my Mother's Day gift card on PENCILS and not some other extravagance...you know they must be good.
Thanks for the great product.
I've always had a thing for writing implements, and am very picky about my pencils (don't get me started on the awful office pencils. I buy my own out of pocket). My perfect pencil would be one that held a point without breaking, dark lead, comfortable to hold, an eraser that lasted through most of the pencil, smooth writing. I was happy with my Dixon Ticonderoga Tri-Writes for years. They weren't perfect, but they were. . . adequate.
Then I saw a review for the Palomino Blackwings, and bought them on impulse, not really believing the reviews, thinking I'd debunk them. Even when I hit "Purchase", I couldn't quite believe I'd bought them.
So who pays $24 for 12 pencils? Me, that's who. I'm addicted. The writing is so smooth and easy. The lead is dark, easily readable and doesn't smudge--very important for crosswords!. The lead is probably softer than what you're used to (I think it's #1 vs. the standard #2), but I wound up liking that once I got used to it.
The point doesn't break easily--you really don't need as much pressure with this. It lives up to its slogan. And since they don't break as often as my old pencils, they last longer, so you get some good value for your money that way.
The eraser--the eraser alone is worth the premium. It's extendable so it'll last as long as the pencil. It's rectangular, so you can easily erase fine points or wide swaths--you can even fidget with it like a clicky pen.
I honestly didn't think this pencil was all that great until I tried to go back to my Tri-Writes when I couldn't find the Palomino.Read more ›
These are the smoothest-easiest pencils I've ever used. Both the 602 and the regular Blackwing sharpen perfectly and the graphite is very dark and consistent. They may not keep a point as well as harder pencils I've tried (mostly German), but I really did not mind that when taking in consideration how incredibly well they write. Overall they keep their point better than most "HB" pencils I've used. As a bonus, it comes with a very good eraser that can be adjusted and use to the end. But most of all, it is impossible to ignore the way they rounded it's hexagonal shape which makes for an extremely comfortable writing experience. I've ordered and tried tens of pencils stopping just short of buying Uni ball's Hi-Unis and Graf-von pencils, and these are simply the best.
Why only four stars if they are the best I've tried?
They are good, but they are not $22 a dozen good. Especially when you can find almost identical performance from a pencil costing $10 per dozen less. Now, don't get me wrong, you won't find this kind of quality and performance out of your "high end" Dixon Triconderoga Black or your office supply brand pencil-- not even close. But for about a dollar a pencil you can go with the Palomino "HB" pencil and you will be basically buying the same pencil (minus the cool looking eraser and the name and aura of the Blackwing pedigree) and never, or almost never notice the difference.Read more ›
