The ultimate Uber-Pencil! Blackwing exceeds the reputation of any other pencil. Its exceptional balance of softness, darkness, and sharpness, set off by an elegant metal band and replaceable eraser, makes it instantly recognizable and highly addictive.

The Blackwing Pearl is a bit harder than the regular Blackwing, but still soft and dark. We place its lead at around a 3B grade. It stays sharp longer, so people who enjoy smooth pencils but don’t want to sharpen them as often prefer the Pearl. Its balance of darkness and hardness also makes it great for people who want to use the same pencil to write and draw with. The Blackwing Pearl has a fittingly pearlescent white finish with a gold ferrule and white eraser.
