Blackwing pencils are all crafted with Genuine Incense-cedar wood from California and Oregon along with premium Japanese graphite. The company traces its roots to the 1930s when the pencil’s exceptional quality and distinctive style made it the creative tool of choice for some, of history's most influential artists, writers, and thinkers. The original Blackwing 602 gained popularity among creative luminaries such as John Steinbeck, Bugs Bunny creator Chuck Jones, and some of the most famous musicians of all time. Today, Blackwing pencils are cult objects.
Of course, you don’t need to be the next Steinbeck to be a part of the story. Just open your Moleskine notebook, pick up a pencil and put down all of your expectations. The iconic ferrule and rectangular eraser allow you to write, sketch, erase and go again; embrace mistakes as part of the process and simply enjoy the quiet moments between you and the page.
