PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
A pencil purist’s delight: Palomino Blackwing Pencil Gift Set
Pencil aficionados from John Steinbeck to Thomas Wolfe have sung the praises of the Palomino Blackwing 602 pencil, which was originally created in the 1930s by Eberhard Faber. Many corporate acquisitions later and amid dropoff of pencil enthusiasm, this beloved pencil was discontinued...but not forgotten. Charles Berolzheimer II has brought it back in its original 602 form for devotees and architects, as well as a modified version with a slightly softer, smoother lead for artists.
  • Gift Set includes 12 of each pencil plus a Long Point Sharpener
  • Pencils have a graphite core with cedar wood casing
  • Hexagonal shape of each pencil won’t roll off your desk
  • Oblong rectangular erasers are removable, fully extending their use
  • 602 Firm pencils have black erasers; Soft pencils have white erasers
  • 602 Firm pencils are embossed with gold lettering: “Half the pressure, twice the speed.”
  • Each pencil: 7 7/8L x 1/2 diameter, 0.22 oz
  • Long Point Sharpener has two 8mm sharpeners
  • On the left of the sharpener, it first sharpens the wood
  • On the right, it then sharpens the graphite to a long precision point
  • Wood box of the Gift Set is accented in black leather, and is made in France
  • 11 7/8W x 3 3/8D x 1 7/8H; 1.2 pounds

Absolutely stunning item! My 10 year old son saw a video on Youtube about these pencils, and decided he just had to try them. I began by placing a small order. He fell so much in love with them, that when he saw this box set, he had to have it! It arrived today, and it's simply beautiful. I'm impressed with both quality and appearance, and it looks like it cost every penny I paid - it definitely doesn't look cheap! I had very high expectations for this item, and I'm thrilled to say I wasn't disappointed! November 9, 2013
Good Quality I received this box within a reasonable timeframe for a personalized shipment. The pencil box is solid, with smooth hinges and a good overall appearance. The engraving is well-balanced with the style of the pencil box and complements it nicely. Another review noted defects in workmanship, but it was likely an isolated incident - as the Levenger representative noted. The box is probably sourced through Blackwing, since I have seen it on other writing instrument websites. However, I did not see the personalization option on other websites. With an equivalent price and the engraving option, this Levenger purchase was my preferred option. October 21, 2013
Great Gift For The Writer I purchased both types of the Palomino Blackwing pencils some time ago. After many months of writing with these jewels, I decided to purchase the Palomino Blackwing Pencil Gift Set. Everything about this gift set is high quality, including the wood case and the pencil sharpener. If you purchase this item, two points: 1) You won't be disappointed. 2) Don't forget the erasers!!

Poor Quality Box - Excellent Pencils I was very disappoined in the quality of the box. The materials were cheap and the workmanship poor. For example, the hindges in the back of the box were not seated properly, so that the space between the lid and the box is uneven. The pencils and the sharpener however, are top-notch. I recommend purchasing the pencils and sharpener separately and finding another box to put them in January 19, 2012
