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