Blackwing Starting Point Set

ITEM: AP17955
A great starter set or gift set for artists
An introductory set to the world of Blackwing. Each set includes: 4 Blackwing pencils, 2 point guards that keep your pencil from breaking on-the-go, 1 black long point sharpener and 2 packs of replacement erasers. The sharpener uses a 2-step process to first sharpen the wood, then precision-sharpen the graphite. The 4 Blackwing pencils include a range of soft, balanced, firm and extra-firm graphite. Over the years, the pencil with the unique rectangular eraser became synonymous with quality.

About Blackwing
The original Blackwing 602 pencil was introduced by the Eberhard Faber Pencil Company in 1934, created for artists, writers and musicians. It became an instant favorite for creators and pencil aficionados like John Steinbeck, Quincy Jones, Stephen Sondheim and Thomas Wolfe. The pencils were discontinued in 1994, and the Blackwing was re-released in 2010 by Charles Berolzheimer II of the CalCedars Company as a tribute to the original.
