The Blackwing Starting Point Set is the perfect gift for the Renaissance Person -- penning a novel like John Steinbeck, drawing a cartoon as did Chuck Jones or composing music in the style of Leonard Bernstein.  A Blackwing for every artful endeavor!  And included are point guards to keep the tips safe, a long part sharpener so you don't loose your edge and erasers to keep the pages clean.

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. 

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