The Palomino Blackwing Pearl Review is Forthcoming!

I just heard from the folks at Pencils.com and they are sending me a Pearl to review! The best news is I won't have to apologize to my wife for buying more pencils!

Blackwing Pearl Preorder

I got the email announcement from Pencils.com this morning. No response as of today on my offer to review a prerelease pencil. ;( Oh well, I'm sure Charles and the gang are busy getting this new guy ready to ship Thursday.

Today is payday. I'm going to probably have to apologize to my wife for spending money on "MORE PENCILS!"
Review of the Blackwing Pearl coming soon!

Blackwing Pearl Coming Next Month!

It is not very often that a new pencil is put on the market, especially one that gets anybody but a few select pencileers excited. This pencil has my attention.

The Blackwing Pearl

I don't have any information yet as to whether this is a new paint scheme or what but the marketing blast I got a couple of days ago says that it is "balanced and smooth" and that it is graphite.

I already see the existing 602 pencils as balanced and smooth and quite frankly it is now my favorite pencil on the market today. I cannot imagine an improvement. But anything is possible.

I emailed pencils.com asking if I could get my hands on an early release. We will see....
