Blackwing Graphite Pencils offer an unrivalled smooth writing and drawing experience. Known for their dark lead and ability to be sharpened to an acute point.

Blackwing Pencils are a range of premium pencils loved across the world for their quality, shape, and lead. They have an extra-long hexagonal barrel made out of California incense cedar and special formulated graphite leads from Japan. They represent undeniable quality, offering an exceptional balance of smooth performance, dark intense lead laydown and sharpness. Consistent and reliable performance despite the softer leads they will still sharpen to a fine point.

  • The "Black" Blackwing is a unique soft, dark lead that feels similar to a 4B lead, but they can also make light marks - ideal for artists.
  • The "Pearl" Blackwing is still soft and dark but more comparable with a 3B lead and ideal for people who want a smooth pencil that stays sharp longer. Ideal for those who want the flexibility to write and draw with it.
  • The "Natural" Blackwing is part of the everyday range of Blackwing Pencils and features an exposed incense-cedar barrel with a subtle clear matte finish, gold ferrule and grey eraser. Contains an extra firm smooth graphite core.
  • The "602" Blackwing is suited to writing but is much smoother than a typical writing pencil and similar to a 2B lead.
  • The Blackwing Volume 64 Pencil is in honour of the Golden Age of comics when in the early 20th Century, stories of legendary characters, superheroes and villains became popular using a halftone printing method to later become a legendary art form. The design on the Volume 64 graphite pencil uses Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black, using a unique double imprint inspired by the comic book lettering to create a bold and striking design. The firm graphite used in the Volume 64 pencil is ideal for sketching.
  • The Blackwing Volume 200 Pencil In 1948, amidst the uncertainty of post-war America, the Beat Generation was born. This literary movement, rooted in anti-materialism and the exploration of the human condition, gathered in the coffeehouses of New York and San Francisco to recite poetry alongside cups of black coffee. During the '50s and '60s, coffeehouses became synonymous with creativity and intellectualism. One such example was Caffè Lena in Saratoga, NY. Opened in a former woodworking shop in 1960, Caffè Lena remains the oldest continually running coffeehouse in the United States. The Blackwing 200 is a tribute to coffeehouses like Caffè Lena and the creative culture they help cultivate. Each pencil features a metallic copper design inspired by classic copper coffee roasting machines found in many coffeehouses during the '50s and '60s.
  • Blackwing Volume 55 The Blackwing 55 celebrates the Golden Ratio. It’s a reminder to slow down and savor the beauty around us. Each pencil contains our balanced graphite and features a design inspired by the Fibonacci sequence, a series of numbers that approximate the Golden Ratio. The width of each color block is the sum of the widths of the previous two color blocks: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, & 55. We designed it in millimeters and then scaled the design up to 1:1.175 ratio to fit the canvas of the pencil. A simple formula with a magnificent result. The Golden Ratio is a mathematical ratio often found in nature, art, and design. It gives the world around us composition and symmetry that, for reasons we don’t fully understand, we find beautiful. It appears in the spiral of a seashell, the uncurling of a fern, and many other natural structures. When applied to the arts, it becomes a tool for creating balanced, organic works.
