My…what a handsome box of pencils!

Each Blackwing French Wood Box Set is hand-crafted using locally-sourced pear wood and leather from northeastern France. Includes a Blacking Two-Step Long Point Sharpener (and blade replacements) and a mix of 24 Blackwing Pencils, 6 each of the Matte, 602, Pearl, and Natural.

Blackwing Natural

Equipped with an extra-firm graphite that works well for extended writing and detailed line work. Each pencil features an exposed Incense-cedar barrel with a subtle clear matte finish, iconic square Blackwing ferrule and grey eraser.

Blackwing Pearl

A favorite of calligraphers and illustrators (and Mr. Boddington), the Blackwing Pearl boasts a balanced and smooth graphite core that is softer than the Blackwing 602, but firmer than the graphite found in the Blackwing Matte. Features a clean pearl white finish, signature square Blackwing ferrule, and white eraser.

Blackwing 602

Did you know the Blackwing 602 was the pencil of choice for John Steinbeck, Chuck Jones, Shamus Culhane and countless other creatives before it was discontinued in 1998?

Favored by teachers, writers, artists, note takers and the like, the Blackwing 602 features a firm and smooth graphite core that earned its hallmark “Half the Pressure, Twice the Speed” tagline. Finished with a gunmetal grey lacquer, signature square Blackwing ferrule and pink eraser.

Blackwing Matte

The Blackwing Matte is perfect for musicians, woodworkers and anyone who prefer a soft, dark line. It is the softest of the four core Blackwing models. Features a timeless matte black finish, signature square Blackwing ferrule, and black eraser.
