Product Description

Pencils with a Story Image

Pencils with a Story

Blackwing pencils were originally introduced by the Eberhard Faber Company in the 1930s. Their cult following included John Steinbeck and Chuck Jones, who proudly used Blackwings to create Bugs Bunny and many other Looney Tunes characters.

Despite this following, they fell victim to cost-cutting measures of the 1990s and were discontinued. But, that didn’t stop devotees from paying as much as 40 dollars per pencil to seize unused stock. In 2010, our company drew from the nearly century of experience in the pencil business to access the best materials in the world and bring Blackwing back for a new generation of writers, musicians, and others seeking a more natural existence.

Today, a portion of every Blackwing sale benefits music and arts education at the K-12 level.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Dixon Ticondoroga Soft 2HB Yellow Just as Good for a Lot Less
Reviewed in the United States on November 16, 2019
I am a ballpoint, fountain pen, and pencil geek and have PERSONALLY tested over 50 brands/models of cedar writing pencils (see below). My testing has shown that both the Blackwing Pearl and Blackwing 602 are very comparable (smoothness, ability to be sharpened without falling apart, etc) to the Dixon Ticondoroga 2HB Soft Yellow pencil. The only Blackwing model that has exceeded the smoothness of the Blackwing 602 and the Dixon Ticondoroga 2HB Soft Yellow pencil was the black Blackwing pencil. Comparables to the Blackwing Black variety are the Mitsubishi Uni 2B and a few others. For the price of a dozen Blackwing Pearl or Blackwing 602 pencils, you are better off either buying the Blackwing Black (its their softest) or grabbing a dozen Dixon Ticondoroga 2HB Soft Yellow pencils for 1/3 the price. The images show the ~50 varieties of writing pencils I have tested, along with a close-up of the Blackwing Black, 602, and Pearl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blackwing for drawing
Reviewed in the United States on January 16, 2018
My review is more geared to those people interested in using these for drawing. I agree with those who find these to be extremely smooth. I have found the price of these not to be too far off from other pencil brands made and used for drawing. For example, I bought a pack of Derwent Graphics that were more than $2 per pencil and not near the smoothness of these pencils. Faber Castell 9000 are about the same price as the Blackwings when not on sale. Staedtlers are about half the price, and are decent but nearly as smooth. Hi Uni is a little less expensive and on par in smoothness with the 602, Pearl, and Blackwing.

I use both the Hi Uni and Blackwings for my drawings. I started drawing with the Blackings, and use the 602 as a 2B, Pearl - 3B and Blackwing - 4B. Later, I bought and used the Hi Uni's 2H, HB, 6B, and 10B. (I only recently became aware of the Palomino Mixed grade pencils, which I would like to try some time) If I must use only one pencil for a sketch or drawing then I would likely choose the 602. If I'm given a choice of 2 it would be the 602 and the Blackwing. Note: I find that the Pearl is very close in blackness to the 602 and I have a hard time discerning the difference.

In the attached image, I used all three Blackwings: 602, Pearl, and Blackwing.

I must give props to the seller, Palomino. When I received my shipment, there were 2 pencils where the eraser ferrell was glued to the eraser bracket making the removal of the eraser nearly impossible. They responded immediately to my concern and promptly sent me replacements + 2 more for good measure. Now that's great service and I couldn't be happier. Thank you Palomino.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Middle Ground - Understand their purpose before buying.
Reviewed in the United States on November 27, 2016
Good balance between the 602 and normal Blackwing, but because I use them for math/writing, and not sketching, I prefer the 602. The 602 has a firmer graphite so you have to sharpen your pencil less. I also press hard when I write, so if I'm frustrated when trying to solve a a problem, the pencils become almost unusable. I had the 602 prior to buying this pack, and the firmer graphite was much easier to write fast with, and also took longer to become dull. I wanted to try something different though, so I gave the pearls a shot. They are great pencils, just not for what I use them for. Would recommend if you sketch, but also want to use them for schoolwork.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely but they melt like butter
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 3, 2022
Beautiful deep black shade and soft writing, but this also means that you’ll go through your pencil very quickly and also that your writing will never have a sharp look.
The rubbers are useless as all pencil-end rubbers, they also erode quickly but are not worth replacing.
Beautiful but expensive over all.
