Blackwing X – LUCID

Brand: Palomino

Made in: USA

Blackwing and Lucid Motors have teamed up to create this limited edition set to celebrate California craftsmanship and the arrival of the Lucid Air — an idea that began as pencil on paper.  Customers are apparently getting these pencils as a thank-you for pre-ordering the Lucid Air Dream, the company’s first car which started shipping in October 2021.

About Palomino

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.
