The gallery photo shows three versions of the original Palomino Blackwing pencils, all out of production. These have the “Soft and Smooth Graphite Formulation.”

• First edition (circa 2010): Pony logo with gold band
• Second edition: Pony logo without the gold band
• Third edition: Trees logo

I would say the second edition is the most rare, simply because they were only produced for a short amount of time. NOTE:  The Second Edition without the gold band is available for purchase here.

Sept. 2021: The 26th release in Blackwing’s Volumes series, the Blackwing 651 is a tribute to the legendary Bruce Lee. Both simple and direct, the pencil features a black and yellow striped design that takes its cues from the philosophies of Jeet Kune Do. The number 651 is derived from 651 S. Weller Street in Seattle, where Bruce Lee opened his first formal school. The extra-firm graphite is ideal for writing notes, including those to your future self, whenever the inspiration strikes. As always a single edition is available for you my collector friends.

June 2021: The 25th release in Blackwing’s Volumes series, the Blackwing 64 is a tribute to comic books and the minds that bring them to life. The pencil features a halftone design that’s a nod to the 64 color palette utilized in some of the earliest comics. Its firm graphite is perfect for sketching a new character concept or writing a list of their super powers.

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. With a price tag of $169,000 USD, these pencils are a going to be a challenge to get…..perhaps like the Moncler??  Yowza!

Blackwing worked with the team at Tribe7 to create a limited edition pencil inspired by their high-end cinematography lenses. The design explores elements of reflection, light and shade as tools of expression in cinematography. Each pencil is imprinted with the “Blackwing x TRIBE7” logo and the seven lens focal lengths currently available in the BLACKWING7 range: 27, 37, 47, 57, 77, 107 & 137mm.
