Palomino - Blackwing 10001 Pencil

$4.50
Blackwing 10001 pays tribute to Miyamoto Sensei’s puzzles and other creative ways of teaching and learning. 10001 is a numeral palindrome in Kanji as well as in Arabic numerals. It is also tied to one of Miyamoto Sensei’s favourite equations. 

The pencil features a red stained barrel, firm graphite that's comparable to the Blackwing 602, gold imprint and unique five-sided “Gōkaku pencil” shape. Translated literally from Japanese, Gōkaku means “passed,” as in a problem or exam. It is also a near-homophone for the Japanese word “Gokakukei,” meaning pentagon. Gōkaku pencils are given to every student who graduates from the Miyamoto Mathematics class.

Made in Japan with FSC-certified cedar wood, it is amazingly smooth and beautiful. Palomino IS the world’s best pencil. The Blackwing is recommended for drawing, sketching and shading. If you want a writing pencil, check out the Palomino Blackwing 602.

Ideal for illustrators and musicians who prefer a soft, dark line, the Palomino Blackwing was launched by California Republic Stationers in October 2010 as a modern version of the iconic Eberhard-Faber Blackwing pencil that was favoured by artists such as Stephen Sondheim and Frank Lloyd Wright.
