  I received the Palomino..., November 23, 2013
By joe...
I received the Palomino Blackwing Gift Box as a gift because I had it in my wish list, and I am glad I did. At first use, what struck me was the smoothness and darkness of the line these pencils produce. I also noted the balance of the pencil with the large eraser. I found it very comfortable to hold and to write with, though after some quick writing it did produce a much thicker line and was in need of sharpening to maintain crisper print. This is in no doubt a product of how soft and dark the lead is. While I found this pencil to be very easy to write with, I do prefer a pencil that lasts longer between sharpening, which of course means I have since added the Blackwing 602 to my wishlist. Though the Blackwing pencils do come at a premium price, I challenge anyone to adequately prove they are not a quality writing tool.
