BLACKWING/PALOMINO’s roots in the pencil industry go back seven generations. The BLACKWING pencil was introduced in the 1930′s by Eberhard Faber and was the pencil of choice for Oscar, Grammy, and Pulitzer Prize winners throughout the 20th century. In 2010, Palomino, whose industry roots were planted over a century ago, revived the Blackwing to much critical acclaim.
