Blackwing pencils were favored by award-winning creators throughout the 20th century. Despite a cult following, they were discontinued in the 1990s. Devotees began paying as much as $40 on eBay for a single pencil.
In the early 2000s, Palomino used their access to the best wood, graphite and artisan makers in the world to introduce a premium pencil line called "Palomino".
The buzz surrounding Palomino led Blackwing fans to asked to try and bring Blackwing pencils back for a new generation. In 2010, the Palomino company did just that.
The Blackwing Palomino is the second entry into the Blackwing Eras series.
It features extra-firm graphite, along with a "Palomino orange" barrel, signature gold stripe, gold Blackwing Palomino imprint, gold ferrule, and white eraser inspired by the Palomino pencils that paved the way for the Blackwing revival.
