  very well made pencils...., October 31, 2013
very well made pencils. dark lines and smooth gliding on paper. I tried both the blackwing and the 602.

on xerox machine papers they feel the same to me but on smooth surfaced papers on good note books, the blackwing is better than the 602 for me. I compared it with many other pencils like the Hi Uni, tombow mono, staedtler lumograph, caran dache, etc. the blackwing is as good as any of them or better - for the price, I think I will stay with the palomino blue.

the big eraser makes it top heavy. I am not too crazy with that. it is also quite soft, so several of them are needed to avoid frequent sharpening recesses during work.

I wrote a lot with it and compared it with the original palomino blue, they feel nearly the same to me. for a lot of writing, I think I will still go to the palomino blue.
