Palomino Blackwing Soft Pencils WWH Erasers 12
An excellent pencil I had found in England and now happy to find here. Super for sketching in either soft or hard versions; sharpen very well to very fine point or anything in between.

Great Pencil for Lefties
I ordered these pencils, the sharpener and a Circa Jr with Rhodia paper. I am very pleased with the combination of these pencils and paper. I am left-handed and pencils tend of smear as I write but not these.
Another thing I love about these pencils is that the lead is centered. Many cheap pencils today don't sharpen well because the lead is not exactly centered so you end up with wood running down the side of the lead. Not these!

GREAT GIFT IDEA ...
I had heard that this was a great pencil by a co-worker, who is also an artist. Based on their recommendation I bought this item as a gift for a "pencil connoisseur" who had only rave reviews for the product.

I use pencils everyday and I'm really picky (my once favorite Ticonderoga pencils are no longer as great as they once were--I don't know what happened to these inexpensive beauties). These Palomino pencils are fantastic! They are easy to write with, sharpen to a fine line and erase beautifully. They will be a staple on my desk now.

I found the writing end of this instrument to be terrific and a pleasure to use, bu the other end, although unique in shape, doesn't really do the job of erasing the mistake created by the soft graphite. To really remove mistakes, one must still use another eraser or live with the ghost. At the price, both ends should equally good.

I was very pleased with the quality of these pencils. The lead was a little softer than I expected, but it makes them an absolute pleasure to write with; leaving a rich black line that is incredibly smooth. The removable eraser is a brilliant idea, and I love the fact that you can get refills. The only drawback is that the holder for the eraser is a little sharp on the edges, and may catch the paper if the eraser gets too short. Overall, a great product.

The Palomino Pencil
My husband bought me these wonderful pencils for Christmas as requested for my school work. I substitute teach and everytime I pull one of these pencils out the students (K-12) just go crazy. They want one. They want to know what it is. They think they are so cool! I am buying extra packs now to give one pencil out to students who do something worthy. Better than candy, app or computer game.

Love these pencils
I gave these to my son (age 10) and daughter (age 13) for school. They love them and like the fact that all of their classmates know if they find a "blackwing" pencil who to return it to because they are so unique.

Both these and the gray version are wonderful writing instruments. I'm a writer, and prefer pencils for certain functions. You can definitely tell the difference when you use these pencils. The very best, well worth it.
