  1. Hi Pencil Revolution,
    I barely feel like I know enough about this issue to even form my question but I was wondering if you could fill me in on the Blackwing history?

    1. Some people prefer the older ones, and some folks seem to think the new ones are an acceptable substitute or alternative. I don’t have one of the originals to compare, but I like the new ones very much. They are made in Japan (not the USA) by CalCedar (not Faber-Castell/Eberhard Faber) — so they are completely different, yet a faithful homage (the 602 is anyway).
