This pack of 3 pencil caps are made out of lightweight aluminum to protect the points of your Blackwing pencils. Each set of Blackwing 155 Point Guards includes one matte blue, one matte yellow, and one matte red Point Guard inspired by Bauhaus artist Wassily Kandinsky's color and shape questionnaire. Kandinsky believed that there was a universal correlation between color and shape, and his questionnaire yielded surprisingly consistent results: a blue circle, a yellow triangle and a red square.
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.
