December 2022: The 31st release in Blackwing’s Volumes series, the Blackwing 192 is a tribute to Lennon and McCartney and the estimated 192 songs they wrote together. The color prism design depicts the convergence of two powerful creative forces. A different Lennon-McCartney lyric is foil stamped on each pencil, for a total of 12 different lyrics in the set. Inside is the extra-firm graphite. *As a special bonus for subscribers, Jai Guru Deva, Om is a 13th pencil found only in the subscribers box tube.
Special Note: So this would be a little time consuming to list all 12 so I am offering singles at first come first serve. Just make a purchase and tell me which lyric you've got your eye on. If I still have it left I will let you know. If I don't have it, you may choose another or get a refund. Sorry, only the 12 lyrics from the pack are available to purchase.
**Currently all 12 models are available for purchase.
Palomino Brands was at one time a division of California Cedar Products Company, which produces CalCedar® and other types of wood slats for pencil manufacturers around the world. California Republic Stationer pencils were first produced beginning in 2003, and in 2012 the company began a transition to Palomino Brands for all new production.
Today, the company no longer uses the Palomino brand name, and instead has put all of its chips on Black(wing). Every three months a new Blackwing Volumes limited edition pencil is introduced.
Where are Blackwing pencils made? The pencils start with American cedar from trees harvested in California and Oregon. The wooden slats are then sent to Japan for graphite production and barrel finishing. Meanwhile, the ferrules and erasers are produced in Vietnam. Everything is shipped back to Blackwing’s headquarters in Stockton, California for final assembly and packaging.
