Blackwing pencils were favoured by award-winning creators throughout the 20th century. Despite a cult following, they were discontinued in the 1990s. Devotees began paying as much as $50 on eBay for a single pencil.

In the early 2000s, Palomino used their access to the best wood, graphite and artisan makers in the world to introduce a premium pencil line we called Palomino. The buzz surrounding Palomino led Blackwing fans to ask them to try and bring Blackwing pencils back for a new generation. In 2010, they did just that.

The Blackwing Palomino is the second entry into the Blackwing Eras series. It features their extra-firm graphite, along with a 'Palomino orange' barrel, signature gold stripe, gold Blackwing Palomino imprint, gold ferrule, and white eraser inspired by the Palomino pencils that paved the way for the Blackwing revival.

The price is for one very special pencil.
