Blackwing Volumes - Vol. 24 - The Sunburst Pencil
We love the Palomino Blackwing pencils. We use them everyday. And now we are proud to offer a set of three new limited edition Blackwing 725 pencils.
This is a release in the “Volumes” series of limited edition Blackwing pencils.
John Steinbeck saw sharpening as another unnecessary, and unacceptable distraction. So every day, before putting graphite to paper, he would sharpen 24 pencils and place them point up in the first of two identical wood boxes. Each pencil lasted just long enough to dull its point – usually four or five lines – before being placed in the second box, point down. After all 24 pencils had progressed from one box to the other, John would resharpen each pencil, and begin the process anew.
We had our Volume number and our design. All that was left was to put them together. The result is the Blackwing 24.
The Blackwing 24 features a new extra-firm graphite great for extended writing. You won’t find this graphite in any of our other Blackwing models. It’s slightly firmer than the graphite found in the Blackwing 602, without sacrificing much in the way of darkness. It also features a distraction-free black barrel, black imprint, black ferrule and black eraser.
