Palomino Blackwing Volumes 1138 Pencils (Individual)
Our favourite pencil, the Palomino Blackwing, in a fabulous special edition!
This Palomino Blackwing 'Volume 1138' set of 12 premium graphite formulation honours 20th-century filmmaker Georges Méliès, who is credited with making the first sci-fi film.
The number '1138' pays tribute to the science fiction genre. Using a process known as movie barcoding, Palomino condensed the entirety of Georges Méliès' s film 'A Trip to the Moon' into individual bands of colour and applied it to the barrel of the Blackwing pencil.The manufacturing process utilises an intricate and unique high-quality printing method called roll-on printing, and this is the first Blackwing pencil with a silver ferrule and silver imprint.
Made in Japan with FSC-certified cedarwood, it is amazingly smooth and beautiful. Palomino IS the world’s best pencil. The Blackwing is recommended for drawing, sketching and shading. If you want a writing pencil, check out the Palomino Blackwing 602.
Ideal for illustrators and musicians who prefer a soft, dark line, the Palomino Blackwing was launched by California Republic Stationers in October 2010 as a modern version of the iconic Eberhard-Faber Blackwing pencil that was favoured by artists such as Stephen Sondheim and Frank Lloyd Wright.
