Blackwing pencils are considered by many to be some of the best available on the market today. After putting out three foundational pencils and their regularly-changing, limited, Volumes series, Blackwing decided it was time to add some color to the line. Unlike their graphite-filled counterparts, these colored pencils are filled with a soft, Japanese wax color core. They have color-matched finishes, silver imprints, and silver metal caps to add a little weight. Finally, every set comes in a handsome Blackwing box with a magnetic closure and peak-through window.¬†

After the initial success of Palomino's graded graphite pencils, Cal Cedar was able to revive the legendary Blackwing pencil. The Blackwing was originally a Eberhart-Faber pencil that had been discontinued and later obtained cult status as pencil aficionados were paying exorbitant amounts at auction for dead stock. The Blackwing had gained a reputation as the pencil of choice for Grammy, Emmy, Pulitzer and Academy Award winners, and now they have become available to a whole new generation of creatives.
