The Blackwing 602, whether you're talking about the original Eberhard Faber iteration or this reincarnation by Palomino, is the standard by which all other pencils seem to be measured these days. This is not without good reason. These pencils strike a fantastic balance between dark, clear marking and reasonable point-retention. they're quite pricey, considering you could just walk into any store and get a box of 24 yellow pencils for a couple bucks, but you would quickly find out they don't compare in terms of performance. I was very happy to find these listed for the old sale price, on top of a 20% off sale. I bought two boxes for just over the price of one box straight from Palomino. Way to go, Shar!

Hi Patricia! We've actually found that it's split pretty equal between those that prefer the soft vs hard. It really depends on how much pressure you prefer to write with. The soft require less pressure and vice versa for the hard.

The Blackwing 602 is between a HB and a 2B, it is considered a firm graphite. Any sharpener can be used with the Blackwing but it is recommend to use the Blackwing Long Point Sharpener as it gives the pencil a nice long sharp point.
