About the brand

These American-made pencils are considered to be one of the finest ever made and have something of a cult following. Discontinued in 1998, they soon became hot property on eBay with single pencils selling for $40 each. Brought back from extinction after petitions and protests in 2011, these are still made from the same Californian incense cedar with the finest Japanese-crafted graphite core. They are a dream to write with - Half the pressure, twice the speed - is their motto. The eraser tip is flat-ended for accuracy and there are three versions which differ in firmness with the standard Blackwing the softest, the Pearl medium and the 602 the firmest.

These pencils have a proud heritage and famous users include John Steinbeck, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein and Chuck Jones, who created Bugs Bunny with his Palamino.

The Rolls Royce of pencil sharpeners
Written by Lady London ( 12/11/2015)
.
I've used this sharpener in the Palominos for years. The sharpener is the Rolls Royce of sharpeners. I enjoy using it so much I just keep on sharpening. I'm sure long lengths of my pencils have ended up in the in as lovely curved shavings when they didn't need to! As soon as the point goes even slightly off, I'm sharpening again... :-) Sharpening with these is just so addictive.

Bureau replies.. exactly the same in our office!  Over-sharpening due to the fantastically sharp point that can be acheived with these sharpeners. Very addictive.
