Palomino Blackwing Pencils at the Outpost

Palomino Blackwing



In keeping up with the creative endeavors of the Outpost, we recently acquired the amazingly infamous Palomino Blackwing Pencils. Its been widely acknowledged that these are the best ‘writing utensils’ in the world. They were originally conceived in the 1930’s and were used by many famous artists and celebrities. During the time that the Blackwing was out of production, from 1998-2010, they would sell online from 3rd party sellers for up to $40 a pencil! The blackwing pencils are offered in 3 different varieties for writing or drawing. They’re fantastic pencils to write with and to top the icing on the cake, they donate a portion of their sales towards music and arts education for kids K-12. Win win.
