Devoted users of the Palomino Blackwing 602 will treasure this Special Edition Gift Set. Presented in a stunning wooden case is a set of 24 Palomino Blackwing pencils and KUM long point pencil sharpener.
The legendary Palomino Blackwing is made in Japan from cedar wood and high-quality graphite. It’s been the chosen pencil of pop-culture icons from Truman Capote to Quincy Jones. NoteMaker gives this pencil our highest recommendation.
The Palomino Blackwing 602 is the modern reincarnation of the famous Eberhard-Faber Blackwing 602. The special-formula graphite lead behaves like a B lead but varies in appearance according to pressure - from HB (firm) lead to 4B (soft) lead.
It has a precise point with good point retention and makes a dark grey line. Its motto is emblazoned on the barrel - Half the pressure, twice the speed - and this is a great description of the writing experience.
The barrel is long and sleek, with a characteristic rectangular replaceable eraser.
