If you are not ready for a set of 12 pencils, we offer each of the base Blackwing pencils individually. Choose from the Matte - Soft, Pearl - Balanced, 02 - Firm, and Natural - Extra Firm.
Matte – Soft : Ideal for musicians, woodworkers and anyone who prefer a soft, dark line, the Blackwing Matte is the softest of the four core Blackwing models. The Blackwing Matte pencil features a timeless matte black finish, iconic square Blackwing ferrule and black eraser.
Pearl – Balanced : 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.
602 – Firm : Praised in the New Yorker, The Boston Globe, and Boing Boing among others, the Blackwing 602 features a firm and smooth graphite core that helps it deliver on its promise of “Half the Pressure, Twice the Speed.” Blackwing 602 pencils feature a gunmetal grey finish and iconic square Blackwing ferrule with a pink eraser.
Natural - Extra Firm : The Blackwing Natural features an exposed Incense-cedar barrel with a subtle clear matte finish and our popular extra-firm graphite. Every Blackwing Natural features a gold imprint, grey eraser and the iconic square Blackwing ferrule.
