The Creative Set joins two legendary brands in one beautifully crafted gift set. Inside the box, you’ll find a year’s supply of 12 Blackwing Soft pencils for graphite pencil drawing and a large Moleskine Sketchbook, along with a pack of 10 Replacement Erasers and a One-Step Long Point Sharpener. This graphite pencil set has everything you need to start capturing your imagination on paper.
Blackwing Soft pencils have a velvety dark graphite core, ideal for artists, musicians, woodworkers, and anyone looking for a bold, dark line. Designed to give depth and texture on paper, these quality pencils include Blackwing’s distinctive metal ferrule, replaceable rectangular eraser, and eraser clip. The sketchbook, with its instantly recognizable Moleskine design and rich 165 g/m² paper, provides the ideal blank canvas to experiment with pressure, shading and contrast. It has premium sketch-grade paper that stands up to eraser use, as well as a hard cover for sketching and drawing on the move.
The Replacement Erasers and One-Step Long Point Sharpener complete the set. Specially designed to help you get the most from your Blackwing pencils, the sharpener creates an extended, curved point that resists breaking. It fits comfortably in your palm and is made from sturdy machined aluminum with a German steel blade inside. You can sharpen your pencil up to three times before needing to empty the canister. The replacement erasers allow you to keep creating and refining until you get it just right, with a clip to hold them firmly in place inside the ferrule.
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.
