The Palomino Blackwing Pearl has a balanced and smooth graphite core that is softer than the graphite found in the Palomino Blackwing 602, but firmer than the graphite found in the Palomino Blackwing. It features a pearl white finish, gold imprint, and white eraser (different than pictured). 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. The two-piece cardboard box measures 2 1/2" wide x 8 3/8" tall x 3/4" deep. Pencils are made in Japan with California incense cedar and Japanese graphite. Erasers are made in China. Comes in a box of 12.
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.
