The latest Blackwing Volume is in, and Palomino has once again created something special. This limited edition pencil is only the second one to include Blackwing's not too hard and not too soft, balanced graphite, and it's the first with a round body. We're a big fan of the unique shade of blue chosen for the eraser, and the gray wash coat that lets the wood grain show through is a stand-out feature. As always, these are a limited run, and once they sell out, they're gone forever.
