The Blackwing Natural features an exposed incense cedar barrel with a subtle clear matte finish and our popular extra-firm graphite. Each Blackwing Natural features a gold imprint, grey eraser and the iconic square Blackwing ferrule. Blackwing Natural pencils come in a pack of 12 in a gift box that doubles as a pencil cup.
Sometimes the letters are also preceded by numbers.They make an even more precise statement about the hardness or colour intensity of the pencil. The higher the number, the harder, softer or blacker the pencil is.
