Palomino Introduces “Balanced and Smooth” Blackwing Pearl Pencil
Yesterday, Palomino announced the Blackwing Pearl pencil, a new addition to their family of Blackwing pencils, notebooks and accessories. The pencil will be available for purchase here at Pencils.com on May 2nd. It promises a “balanced and smooth” graphite performance that falls in between the “soft and smooth” Palomino Blackwing and “firm and smooth” Blackwing 602. Here is an excerpt from the press release they sent out yesterday describing the pencil:
“The Blackwing Pearl features a lustrous pearl white finish and black eraser, along with a balanced and smooth graphite core that is softer than the graphite found in the Palomino Blackwing 602, but firmer than the graphite found in the Palomino Blackwing. It joins Palomino’s growing family of Blackwing pencils, notebooks and lifestyle products.”
You can read the entire Blackwing pearl press release here. Palomino has also posted a blog post explaining the thoughts and motivations behind the release of the new pencil. You can read the post in its entirety over on their blog.
