A pencil purist’s delight: Palomino Blackwing 602 Pencil
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.

Cool pencils! I thought they might be too firm, but they are just write! Your writing will appear crisp but the lead allows your own writing style to come out. November 3, 2013
It's the Write Choice I am a writer. And when I first read the history of the Palomino Blackwing 602, I was intrigued. What writer doesn't want to connect--even superficially--with the greats like Hemingway and Steinbeck. Writing is about ritual and dreams almost as much as it about hard work and dedication. Well the Blackwing 602 doesn't disappoint on either front. It's a reliable workhorse that i enjoy using every day. My hand doesn't cramp when I write for long periods. And the little long point sharpener is handy. I can pick it up and sharpen my pencil without getting up and going to the pencil sharpener and can be thinking about my next thought even as I use the sharpener. It's as if sharpening the pencil is part of the ritual. I like the way the Blackwing 602 performs so much that I'm giving them out to my writing friends this Christmas. And I love what the Blackwing 602 represents. I feel as though I'm using a little touch of history. Thank you for bringing this back. The pencil has replaced my fountain pen as writing instrument of choice for first drafts. November 2, 2013
An Exceptional Pencil I have been very pleased with these pencils. The lead is a bit softer than I usually use, stays sharpened longer, doesn't easily break with pressure, nice balance. Although one doesn't need the Palomino Long Point Sharpener, it is definitely worth the money in return for the great point that results. January 12, 2013
Really unimpressed I don't understand the hype around this product. I was disappointed to say the least. The pencils are promised to write more smoothly and at a quicker pace. I did not find that to be the case. I use them on my Circa agenda, which contains a good quality paper. I see no difference whatsoever between these pencils and the highest priced standard pencils I buy at the office supply store. In fact, I like the others better! I also bought the sharpener, which was equally disappointing. November 30, 2012
Love these pencils! I really enjoy using these pencils! They last forever, and the special sharpener takes off just enough to make a nice sharp point. November 18, 2012
LOVE these pencils I have never had a job where I used pencils as much as my new position, and when I saw these I had to try them. They are definitely the gold standard in pencils. They write beautifully, you hardly have to put any pressure on them at all and they sharpen up very nicely with the accessory sharpener that is offered with the pencils. I even bought the replacement erasers, and everyone in the office is jealous of me!! It feels good to have beautiful, functional instruments to write with... and you cant beat the price. As long as Levenger sells these, I will be buying them...Try them and see for yourself.... and make YOUR co-workers jealous!! December 17, 2011
