The Blackwing Pencil was originally designed in the 1930s and revived in 2010. Each pencil provides a soft, smooth writing experience for artists. Made of genuine Incense-Cedar casing and Japanese graphite with a matte black finish, these pencils are known for their iconic ferrule. The ferrule holds both the replaceable eraser and an eraser clip to allow flexibility in eraser length. A favorite of Cherryl Moote, these pencils are perfect for calligraphy practice, design sketches and more.
