Blackwing Graphite Pencil - Pearl White

Blackwing Graphite Pencils offer an unrivalled smooth writing and drawing experience. Known for their dark lead and ability to be sharpened to an acute point.  The pencils have an extra long hexagonal barrel made out of California incense cedar and special formulated leads from Japan. They represent undeniable quality, offering an exceptional balance of smooth performance, dark intense lead laydown and sharpness. Consistent and reliable performance despite the softer leads they will still sharpen to a fine point.

The Blackwing Pearl is a bit harder than the regular Blackwing, but still soft and dark. We place its lead at around a 3B grade. It stays sharp longer, so people who enjoy smooth pencils but don’t want to sharpen them as often prefer the Pearl. Its balance of darkness and hardness also makes it great for people who want to use the same pencil to write and draw with. The Blackwing Pearl has a fittingly pearlescent white finish with a gold ferrule and white eraser.
