Half the pressure...twice the speed, Blackwing arrives at Penfax

We love brands with a rich history and iconic status, which Blackwing certainly achieves with ease, favoured by celebrities and adored by its followers, Blackwing is more than a humble pencil.

As with some writing instruments 'it's not always what you write, but what you write with', and this is Blackwing, they are lovely to hold, smooth to write with and a delight to own.  At Penfax we have always liked pencils they way they look, feel and even smell, there is just something about pencils and that's probably why we were fans of Blackwing Palomino pencils long before we stocked them. 

Blackwing's arrive unsharpened, so the first job is to cut the first shaving of the new pencil, a ritual in its own right! The Incense-cedar casing, used for its durability and knot-free texture, is a delight to carve, creating uniquely formed shavings and then you're ready to go.  However remember, even if you do make a mistake, this can be easily remedied using built in replaceable eraser.
