What good is a pencil without its point? This Blackwing Long Point Pencil Sharpener creates the perfect point using a two-step sharpening process. The first hole sharpens the wood and then the second precisely sharpens the graphite core to a long, fine point. Every sharpener comes with two (2) replacement blades and an automatic brake that prevents over-sharpening.
Each sharpener features a matte rubberized finish for added grip and German steel sharpening blades. The sharpener can hold three (3) fresh sharpens before needing to be emptied.
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.
The Blackwing Two-Step Long Point Pencil Sharpener measures 2.75" L x 1" W x 1.5" H.
