The Blackwing 602 features a firm and smooth graphite core with the motto “Half the Pressure, Twice the Speed.” It features a graphite gray pearlescent finish, gold imprint, and pink eraser. Its unique and iconic ferrule allows you to extend and replace its eraser and even “hack” your pencil to give it a custom look with a different colored eraser.
The unsharpened pencil measures 5/16" wide (barrel)/3/8" wide (eraser) x 7 15/16" tall. Pencils are made in Japan with California incense cedar and Japanese graphite. Erasers are made in Vietnam. Comes 12 pencils in a sturdy box that can double as a pencil holder.
Palomino donates 2% of all Blackwing sales to the Blackwing Foundation at the end of each calendar year. The Blackwing Foundation was founded in 2012 to further music and arts education at the K-12 level.
