The Palomino Blackwing 602 has the “Firm and Smooth Graphite Formulation” and the classic phrase “Half the pressure, twice the speed.” NOTE: The model at the top with the older running horse logo is available for purchase. Take a look at two other Blackwing 602 pencils made by Eberhard Faber and Faber-Castell.
