The Blackwing Long Point Pencil Sharpener creates the perfect point using a two-step sharpening process, first sharpening the wood and then precision sharpening the graphite core to a long, fine point. Every sharpener comes with two replacement blades and an automatic brake that prevents over-sharpening.
The Blackwing pencil was developed in 1930, and has been used by some of the most legendary Grammy, Emmy, Pulitzer and Academy Award winners to date. This includes John Steinbeck, Stephen Sondheim, and Chuck Jones (who proudly used Blackwing pencils to create Bugs Bunny and countless other Looney Tunes characters). In 1998, the Blackwing pencil was discontinued, but not forgotten. In fact, fans began paying as much as $40 per pencil on eBay. Artists from around the world urged Palomino Brands, another premium pencil brand to pick up selling the Blackwing pencil...And they did! Today, many claim the Blackwing pencil to be the best writing utensil in the world.
