Put me in a stationery store, you will never get me out. But I don’t just love the notebooks, papers, stamps, and stickers. I also love pens and pencils that are pretty to look at and nice to write with. The Palomino Blackwings are these lovely throwback pencils that CalCedar has resuscitated from and old Eberhard Faber line. They’re elegant, with a gold-on black look, stylish, marked with a racing stallion, and unique, with a flattened white eraser. If only I had them for when I was reviewing (or, let’s face it, re-learning) my math for the GREs. I might’ve been slightly more entertained by the Pythagorean theorem.
You can check the set out on on the Pencils website. Yes, there is actually a whole site dedicated to pencils. You’re welcome.
