Blackwings are back! With a cult following and roots that go back to the 1930's, legends in the arts have been using Blackwing pencils for nearly a century. For everyday users and artists alike, Blackwings are the ultimate writing instruments. The Starting Point Set Pearl features six Blackwing Pearl pencils with balanced graphite. In terms of firmness, the Blackwing Pearl is firmer than the Palomino Blackwing but softer than the Blackwing 602. Included in the set are beautiful, shiny gold Point Guards to protect the tips. The essential Long Point Sharpener uses a two-step process to first sharpen the wood before precisely sharpening the graphite to a long, fine point. The Blackwing pencils are crafted with California incense-cedar with a pearl white finish and smooth graphite made by Japanese artisans. The iconic ferrule design of the eraser allows replacement as needed. As much as we all appreciate the advances in technology, there is nothing like a Blackwing Pearl pencil in your hand.
