This special edition pencil is the fourth entry in our Blackwing Eras series - honoring Blackwing's heritage with designs inspired by the Blackwing 602's unique history.
The Blackwing Eras (2023 Edition) pencil sports a retro design inspired by the Van Dyke 601. Each box includes 12 special edition pencils with a yellow barrel, dark grey ferrule with a gold band, a red eraser, our firm graphite, and a “PULL OUT CLAMP TO LENGTHEN ERASER” imprint.
In 2020, we launched our first Eras pencil celebrating 10 years of the Blackwing revival with a design pulled straight from the 1930s. In 2021, we released our second Eras pencil paying tribute to the Palomino pencils that inspired the Blackwing revival. Then in 2022, we honored the arrow-punched ferrule found on Blackwing pencils in the mid-20th century.
Made in USA
- The Blackwing pencil has a rich history dating back to 1934. In 2008, Palamino acquired the brand and began production of the Blackwing range as we know it today. Blackwing pencils are famously known for their quality of graphite and the unique softness and smoothness of their lead. The Blackwing pencil has an instantly recognisable semi hexagonal body and interchangeable eraser. The original 602 pencil single handedly inspired the works of some of history's greatest throughout the years. It is said that Disney animator Shamus Culhane asked to be buried with his Blackwing 602.
