For the fans and loyalists of the original Blackwing pencil, you may be interested to hear about the new Palomino Blackwing from California Cedar. Cal Cedar made a name for itself several years ago with the introduction of the Palomino pencil but many in the pencil community (yes, there really is such a thing!) are excited to see this pencil available and in regular use. I love the dakr smooth line quality and the honkin’ big eraser. I cannot wait to buy a set!
