THE Palomino STORY

This is the story of the pencil that inspired the revival of the Blackwing 602.

When they were released, Palomino’s premium graded graphite pencils received heaps of praise thanks to their sleek look and ability to lay down a smooth, solid line. One reviewer was so pleased with Palomino’s new line of pencils she compared them to the legendary Eberhard Faber Blackwing 602.

At the heart of every Palomino Original pencil is one of the world’s finest Japanese-crafted graphite cores. This core is encased in Genuine California Incense-cedar and finished with a smooth lacquer, giving every Palomino Original pencil exceptional sharpening performance and the look of quality that has come to be associated with Palomino products.

Shortly after the release of its Palomino Original graphite pencil, Palomino introduced color and watercolor pencils. Then, in 2011, Palomino launched a luxury notebook range, containing hardbound and flex notebooks of various sizes and paper types, as well as the Palomino luxury sketchbook and folio.

Palomino products allow people of all ages to draw, write and create, using products that reflect the quality of their work.
