Blackwing Matte Pencil (12 Pencils)

£30.00

Claimed by many to be the best writing utensil in the world, Blackwing pencils are famous for the quality of graphite, iconic shape, replaceable eraser, and the men and women whose works they’ve inspired throughout the years. The Blackwing Matt is the softest of the Blackwing Pencils. It is ideal for artists, musicians, and woodworkers

Please note: Blackwing has very recently changed their packaging. Although most orders will include their new version, some might still receive their previous design while stock lasts.
