The Blackwing Pearl features a pearl white finish, gold imprint, white eraser, and a balanced and smooth graphite core that is softer than the graphite found in the Blackwing 602, but firmer than the graphite found in the Blackwing. Every Blackwing Pearl pencil features the iconic square Blackwing ferrule. Blackwing Pearl pencils come in a 12-pack gift box that doubles as a pencil cup.
The story of Blackwing pencils began in the 1930s, and since then, some of the world’s most legendary, award-winning artists have used them. Their cult following included John Steinbeck and Chuck Jones, who proudly used Blackwings to create Bugs Bunny and many other Looney Tunes characters. According to animation historian Charles Soloman, there’s even a Disney animator who was buried with his Blackwing. Blackwing pencils have a long heritage of providing not just a unique graphite pencil but an exceptional pencil experience for makers of all types.
