About this deal

Pencils are a tribute to the Golden Ratio, depicting the Fibonacci sequence with ten alternating stripes of increasing size. Blackwing’s roots go back almost 100 years to the 1930’s when the 602 model was first introduced by the Eberhard Faber Pencil Company. Each box includes 12 special edition pencils with a yellow barrel, dark grey ferrule with a gold band, a red eraser, our firm graphite, and a “PULL OUT CLAMP TO LENGTHEN ERASER” imprint.

The simple design allows the extender to slide into the clip of the existing Blackwing ferrule and will work with any Blackwing pencil model. The first concepts for the rover’s robotic arm and zoom camera were drawn with Blackwing pencils at Motiv Space Systems, a fitting illustration of the pencil’s ability to help us reach for the stars.

When the machine that made the custom Blackwing ferrules broke, demand was so low that it did not make sense to repair it.During the 1950s and 1960s, American coffeehouses became synonymous with creativity, intellectualism, and the Beat Generation. Praised in the New Yorker, The Boston Globe, and Boing Boing among others, the Blackwing 602 features a firm and smooth graphite core that helps it deliver on its promise of “Half the Pressure, Twice the Speed. The Blackwing x Third Man Records set comes with 6 yellow barrel/black imprint and 6 black barrel/yellow imprint pencils with a blue-striped black ferrule, and red eraser.

Their metallic copper finishes are inspired by classic coffee roasting machines, and the volume number is taken from the temperature at which the seeds of the coffee plant are transformed into the roasted beans we know and love. Although they’re the hardest Blackwing pencil, they’re still smooth, which makes writing with them a pleasant experience. Although it was released during the Great Depression, the Blackwing was as much a premium pencil then as it is now.German architect Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus design school with the belief that “there is no essential difference between the artist and the artisan. It gives the world around us composition and symmetry that, for reasons we don’t fully understand, we find beautiful. We took the iconic design of our eraser clip and adapted it into a sleek handheld form that feels great to use. When the lake began to lose its stunning clarity due to pollution, aggressive conservation efforts brought it back to a visible depth of 73 feet—a significant improvement over its low of 66 feet.
