Designed for people seeking creative balance away from the daily grind, each Blackwing Colors pencil features a unique soft and smooth colour core designed specifically for colouring.
Each pencil features the same semi-hexagonal barrel found in our graphite pencils and a metal end cap that adds a bit of weight, giving the pencils a comfortable, balanced feel.
Blackwing pencils were originally introduced by the Eberhard Faber Pencil Company in the 1930s. Their cult following included John Steinbeck and Chuck Jones, who proudly used Blackwings to create Bugs Bunny and many other Looney Tunes characters.
Despite this following, they fell victim to cost cutting measures in the 1990s and were discontinued. But, that didn’t stop devotees from paying as much as $40 per pencil to seize unused stock. In 2010, our company drew from nearly a century of experience in the pencil business to access the best materials in the world and bring Blackwing back for a new generation of writers, musicians, and others seeking a more natural existence.
Today, a portion of every Blackwing sale benefits music and arts education at the K-12 level.
