Blackwing’s One-Step Long Point Sharpener creates a long, curved point that looks beautiful and resists breakage. Its compact design is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand or as a permanent part of your everyday carry. The body is made of durable machined aluminum and the sharpening unit features a German steel blade. The canister can hold three fresh sharpens before needing to be emptied.
Length 2 1/2” Blackwing pencils started in the 1930’s and gained fans among some of the world's leading writers and artists. When the company folded in 1998 people began scouring the internet for Blackwing pencils. After a strange series of events, the founder of Palomino, a longtime California pencil company, reinstated the iconic Blackwing 602 pencil as well as offering a modified version with slightly softer lead for artists. Thought by many to be the best writing instrument in the world for simplicity, shape and quality lead, Blackwing, once again has a whole line of products on offer.
