This set of twelve high-quality graphite pencils comes in a beautiful matte white finish and features unique, fan-shaped erasers at the end of each unit. Blackwing pencils were favored by many Oscar, Grammy, and Pulitzer Prize winners throughout the 20th century. After they were discontinued, fans began paying as much as $40 per pencil to seize unused stock. Now, Blackwing is back for a new generation of artists, writers, musicians, and people who appreciate the craftsmanship of a well-made good.

The Blackwing Pearl features a pearl white finish, gold imprint, white eraser, and a balanced and smooth graphite core that is softer than the graphite found in the Blackwing 602, but firmer than the graphite found in the Blackwing.  It's lead is placed at a 3B grade. Every Blackwing Pearl pencil features the iconic square Blackwing ferrule.

This product features the legacy version of the Blackwing imprint and packaging used from 2010-2019. Legacy stock available while supplies last.
