The Blackwing Natural features an extra-firm and smooth graphite core which is great for extended writing. It features a clear finish to expose the natural wood, gold imprint, and gray 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.
