This special edition pencil is the third entry in our Blackwing Eras series - honoring Blackwing's heritage with designs inspired by the Blackwing 602's unique history.
In 2020, we launched our first Eras pencil celebrating 10 years of the Blackwing revival with a design pulled straight from the 1930s. In 2021, we released our second Eras pencil paying tribute to the Palomino pencils that inspired the Blackwing revival.
This Eras pencil sports a retro design inspired by the arrow-punched ferrule found on Blackwing pencils in the mid-20th century. Each box includes 12 special edition pencils that feature a dark grey barrel, gold arrow-punched ferrule, gold imprint, red eraser, and our extra-firm graphite.
We teamed up with the folks at Makers Cabinet to create a truly unique sharpening experience. The Blackwing Høvel allows you to create custom pencil points tailored to your specific needs. It offers the benefits of a traditional woodworking plane right in the palm of your hand.
Create your custom point by holding the Høvel at both ends with your dominant hand and shaving directly away from yourself until you've reached your desired point. Adjust the angle of the Høvel and the depth of the blade to achieve a variety of different points.
The Blackwing Høvel is made from black anodized aluminum and includes a matching black wooden base. This set also includes 10 carbon steel replacement blades.
We teamed up with legendary comic book publisher Image Comics to create a special-edition pencil set - celebrating their 30th anniversary - inspired by the best-selling sci-fi comic series, Paper Girls. The Hugo and multiple Eisner Award-winning comic book was co-created by acclaimed author Brian K. Vaughan and renowned artist Cliff Chiang, with colors by Matt Wilson and letters by Jared K. Fletcher.
This special-edition 12-pack features Paper Girls character designs pulled directly from the comic book creation process, starting with the sketching, penciling, and inking and finishing with the colored illustration. Each pencil also features a pearl imprint, black ferrule, and blue eraser. This set comes with 6 soft and 6 firm graphite pencils.
The Blackwing x Image Comics pencil set is available online exclusively from Blackwing while supplies last. Limit 4 packs per customer.
