Brand: Eagle Pencil Co.
Made in: USA
The Black Warrior was one of the first pencils to catch my eye as a middle schooler in Olney, Maryland, in the early 1980s. Always a safe bet for a pencil fight! For the past several months I've been buying up as many as I could find, particularly the No.2. These of course are the older Black Warrior models with the Eagle imprint (as opposed to the newer pencils marked with Berol). Now I'm making them available to pencil fans worldwide, along with a free matching sticker while supplies last. The pencils are factory sharpened and lovely and ... don’t you want one?
Check out the Black Warrior T-shirt at my Etsy gift shop, too!
The company was originally founded in New York City by the Berolzheimer family, and in 1969 became part of Berol Corporation. Berol was purchased by Empire in 1986, which was purchased by Sanford in 1995 (which is today a division of Newell Brands).
