When we brought the Blackwing brand back in 2010, we threw a "Party for the Pencil" in New York City. This caught the attention of New Yorker editor Mary Norris, who wrote the first story about the Blackwing revival.  

Since then, Blackwing pencils have been featured in the New York Times, Boston Globe, the Wall Street Journal, and Monocle Magazine, among others.
