Palomino Blackwing Gift Set 24 piece mixed
My son uses these pencils daily. I took advantage of a holiday discount offer and ordered this set with personalization. I ordered just two days before Christmas, but my intent was to save it for a graduation gift. It arrived on Christmas Eve!! What amazing staff to get something done so quickly!! Needless to say, once I had it and saw how beautiful it was, I could not wait until graduation. Under the tree it went! My son was thrilled and I know he will have it and use it for years to come.
I recommend the full name personalization - it is so beautiful and really "makes" it!

For those who are blessed with grandchildren attending classes requiring handwritten essays, this is a great gift--It adds some class to the preparation of the assignment and leaves a quality presentation of their work.

Wonderful pencil set
As someone who is always looking for a great pencil, I am thrilled with the Palomino Blackwings and use them all the time. Since I enjoy the pencils so much, I got the boxed set for a friend who has come to love them as much as I do. The box is made of a lovely, solid wood and opens smoothly. The two-step pencil sharpener is a great addition to the set--seriously, try one and you'll understand.
I upgraded the shipping to get the pencil set in time for the holidays and it was mailed out the same day. In short, great product and great service.

My husband is a composer and loves the quality of these pencils. The case is quality wood with classy burnt engraving.

Absolutely stunning item!
My 10 year old son saw a video on Youtube about these pencils, and decided he just had to try them. I began by placing a small order. He fell so much in love with them, that when he saw this box set, he had to have it! It arrived today, and it's simply beautiful. I'm impressed with both quality and appearance, and it looks like it cost every penny I paid - it definitely doesn't look cheap! I had very high expectations for this item, and I'm thrilled to say I wasn't disappointed!

I received this box within a reasonable timeframe for a personalized shipment.
The pencil box is solid, with smooth hinges and a good overall appearance. The engraving is well-balanced with the style of the pencil box and complements it nicely.
Another review noted defects in workmanship, but it was likely an isolated incident - as the Levenger representative noted.
The box is probably sourced through Blackwing, since I have seen it on other writing instrument websites. However, I did not see the personalization option on other websites. With an equivalent price and the engraving option, this Levenger purchase was my preferred option.

Great Gift For The Writer
I purchased both types of the Palomino Blackwing pencils some time ago. After many months of writing with these jewels, I decided to purchase the Palomino Blackwing Pencil Gift Set. Everything about this gift set is high quality, including the wood case and the pencil sharpener. If you purchase this item, two points:
1) You won't be disappointed.
2) Don't forget the erasers!!

Poor Quality Box - Excellent Pencils
I was very disappoined in the quality of the box. The materials were cheap and the workmanship poor. For example, the hindges in the back of the box were not seated properly, so that the space between the lid and the box is uneven. The pencils and the sharpener however, are top-notch. I recommend purchasing the pencils and sharpener separately and finding another box to put them in
