The legendary Palomino Blackwing is made in Japan from cedarwood 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 is the modern reincarnation of the famous Eberhard-Faber Blackwing. It is an excellent pencil for sketching. The special-formula graphite lead behaves like a soft 4B lead pencil but is unusually smooth. Described as being like writing with black velvet, the Blackwing is soft and easy to use.
The soft, broad point draws a black line and wears easily down to a soft sketch-friendly shape. The barrel is long and sleek, with a characteristic rectangular replaceable eraser.
