Blackwing pencils

Blackwing’s roots go back to the 1930’s when the 602 model was first introduced by Eberhard Faber.

The pencil with the unique rectangular eraser became synonymous with quality. When the brand was discontinued, fans began paying as much as $40 on eBay for a single Blackwing pencil.

Charles Berolzheimer, whose family’s roots in the pencil industry date back to the mid 19th century, used the company’s unique supply relationships to re-introduce Blackwing pencils in 2010 featuring genuine Californian incense-cedar and premium Japanese graphite. 

There are twelve individual steps in the making of each pencil. 

Blackwing promotes a culture that encourages and empowers creativity in all forms. A percentage of every Blackwing product sold benefits music and arts education.

Blackwing Vol. 42 ~ dedicated to Jackie Robinson and everyone else who inspires people to pursue their dreams regardless of the obstacles in their way. Inspired by Robinson's uniform, each pencil features a bright white finish, a metallic gray ferrule, a blue imprint and eraser, and a red 42—Robinson's jersey number with the Brooklyn Dodgers. He was the first African American in over 60 years to play for a Major League Baseball team, but faced racism from fans, rivals, and even fellow teammates. His response was always to work harder and prove that he belonged.
