I find the 602 to be harder and less dark than regular Palomino Blackwings. The
602 series are more faithful to the original Eberhart Faber Blackwings in lead
content as well as design. I really like these for sketching where I use the
darker Blackwing more for shading or life drawing they’re both very smooth
pencils. I was surprised that the eraser works very well and is removable on a
lot of pencils I find the erasers more of an afterthought and I need to carry a
separate one. Over all there a great pencil all the ones I’ve tried had nicely
centered lead cores.
