Blackwing 602 pencil
The iconic Blackwing 602 pencil – firm, lighter graphite.
Claimed by many to be the best writing instrument in the world, Blackwing pencils are famous for the quality of graphite, iconic shape, replaceable eraser, and the men and women whose works they’ve inspired throughout the years.
Many Grammy, Emmy, Pulitzer and Academy Award winners have created with Blackwing pencils. The list of known users includes John Steinbeck, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein and Chuck Jones (who used Blackwings to create Bugs Bunny and other Looney Tunes characters).
Blackwing pencils are made out of incense-cedar from California. Incense-cedar features a fine, straight grain that sharpens quickly and evenly, giving the pencil a smooth, sharp point (and it smells wonderful too).
Premium Japanese graphite is used in all Blackwing pencils. Japanese graphite is darker and smoother than many other graphites.
Made in Japan.
