Designed for people seeking creative balance away from the daily grind, each Blackwing Colors pencil features a unique soft and smooth color core designed specifically for coloring. Includes 12 pencils each of a different color: pink, red, orange, yellow, green, light green, light blue, blue, purple, brown, black, and white. Each pencil features the same semi-hexagonal barrel found in Blackwing graphite pencils and a metal cap that adds a bit of weight, giving the pencils a comfortable, balanced feel. The colored pencils feature extra-smooth color core, a thick, color-matching finish and crisp, silver imprint, cedar casing that sharpens evenly and easily, and a silver hex cap.
More to the Story
Blackwing’s roots date back to the 1930’s when the 602 model was first introduced by the Eberhard Faber Pencil Company. Over the years, the pencil with the unique rectangular eraser became synonymous with quality. Then, in 1998, after several corporate acquisitions, it was discontinued, but not forgotten. In fact, fans began paying as much as $40 on eBay for a single Blackwing pencil.
Artists soon noticed that Palomino’s range of premium pencils compared favorably to the Blackwing 602. They began asking Palomino to consider reviving the Blackwing brand, complete with its defining rectangular eraser. Palomino founder Charles Berolzheimer, whose family’s roots in the pencil industry date back to the mid 19th century, used the company’s unique supply relationships to re-introduce Blackwing pencils in 2010 featuring California Genuine Incense-cedar and premium Japanese graphite. The pencil has drawn rave reviews from users and national media attention.
In the last few years, Blackwing has grown from a single pencil into a culture. It’s a culture that encourages and empowers creativity in all forms, especially in our nation’s schools. In fact, a percentage of every Blackwing product sold benefits music and arts education at the K-12 level.
