The Exquisite Palomino Blackwing Pencils

When you have your beautiful, new, handmade leather journal, you're going to need the proper tools to write in it. Whatever kind of pen or pencil you're looking for to write on the first page of your new journal, our selection has something for you to bring your ideas to life on paper.

One of our favorite writing utensils is the Palomino Blackwing Pencil.

The Blackwing pencil was introduced in the 1930′s by Eberhard Faber and was the pencil of choice for Oscar, Grammy, and Pulitzer Prize winners throughout the 20th century. After it was discontinued in the 1990′s, fans began paying as much as $40 per pencil to seize unused stock.

In 2010, Palomino, whose industry roots were planted over a century ago, revived the Blackwing to much critical acclaim.



Crafted using the finest materials, from its woodcasing to its graphite core.
Blackwing pencils truly are in a league of their own.
