The Blackwing 602 is a revival of the original 20th century cult classic 602 pencil used by legendary Grammy, Emmy, Pulitzer and Academy Award winners. The list of known users includes John Steinbeck, Frank Lloyd Wright, Leonard Bernstein, Looney Tunes creator Chuck Jones, and Disney animator Shamus Culhane who, according to animation historian Charles Solomon, requested to be buried with his Blackwing 602.
Blackwing’s roots go back to the 1930’s when the 602 model was first introduced by the Eberhard Faber Pencil Company. Over the years, the pencil with the unique rectangular eraser became synonymous with quality. Then, in 1998, after several corporate acquisitions, it was discontinued, but not forgotten. In fact, fans began paying as much as $40 on eBay for a single Blackwing pencil.
