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.
Made in Japan with FSC-certified cedarwood, it is amazingly smooth and beautiful. Blackwing IS the world’s best pencil.
The list of known Blackwing users includes John Steinbeck, Stephen Sondheim, and Chuck Jones, who proudly used Blackwings to create Bugs Bunny and countless other Looney Tunes characters.
Now, Blackwings are assisting a new generation of writers, artists and musicians including Grammy Award-winning Sugarland member Kristian Bush and 'Ren and Stimpy' creator Bob Camp.
