The New Blackwings Arrive!


From the pencil-loving folks who brought you the beloved Palomino, we are pleased to be one of a few harbingers of the newly reborn Blackwing pencil.  We received two of them today in the mail, in a much anticipated envelope.

Please keep in mind two things:

1) These are strictly pre-production samples.  So changes to the final product may or may not be made.  We checked with our comrades at Cal Cedar before posting these images, and they requested that we stress that this a pre-production run.

2) We do not sell or make these (or any other pencils) at Pencil Revolution.  We merely spread the word and the, er, graphite.  There has been a lot of confusion about that over the last few years, and it’s probably my own fault for my strange collective voicing of things.

Just wanted to get this post up, to brag in a way, before sharpening one of these beauties up and doing some writing.

See also Orange Crate Art, Boing Boing and The Blackwing Pages for more first impressions.
