The upgraded Two-Step Long Point Sharpener features Blackwing's reliable two-step sharpening system inside of a sleek new package. This new sharpener is more compact, yet holds the same amount of shavings as its predecessor thanks to some optimizations to the shaving compartment. Additionally, the lid stays securely closed while in use. The Two-Step Long Point Sharpener creates a long point using a two-step sharpening process, first sharpening the wood and then precision sharpening the graphite core. It features a matte rubberized finish for added grip, and the same German steel blades you’ve come to expect. Available in black and white.
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.
