Ideal for illustrators and musicians who prefer a soft, dark line, the Palomino Blackwing was launched in October 2010 as a modern version of the iconic Eberhard Faber Blackwing 602 pencil that was favored by artists such as Stephen Sondheim and Chuck Jones. Palomino Blackwings boast a sophisticated matte black finish with pearl white erasers. You can even “hack” your eraser with replacement erasers available in white, black and the traditional pink.
