"Half the pressure, twice the speed." is the promise of the Blackwing 602 (the gray one!) with a firm and soft mine. The black Blackwing has a greasy face that will satisfy the designers. Between the two? It’s the Blackwing Pearl.
The Blackwing pencil 602 has a medium softness mine of great finesse. It is the equivalent of a 1B. Thanks to the addition of wax in the graphite, its creamy mine allows to force less.
The mythical Palomino pencil, the Blackwing, produced by Eberhard Faber in the United States until 1998 is again available for fans, this time produced in Japan with the same quality (with cedar wood).
Indeed relaunched in 2005, the iconic Eberhard Faber Blackwing Pencil is a favorite of creatives and fictional characters like Mad Men’s Kinsey and Jaws' Matt Hooper. The Blackwing Pencil is ideal for soft and dark lines.
