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....
