Description The iconic Palomino Blackwing 602 was the pencil of choice for John Steinbeck, Chuck Jones, and countless others before it was discontinued. In 2011, we brought it back. The Blackwing 602 features a firm and smooth graphite core that helps it deliver on its promise of “Half the Pressure, Twice the Speed,” a gunmetal grey finish and iconic square Blackwing ferrule with a pink eraser. Blackwing 602 pencils come in a 12-pack gift box that also doubles as a pencil cup. Additional erasers and a pencil sharpener are also available.
