Blackwing Volume 710 Limited Edition [ 12 Pencils ]

£39.50

The Blackwing 710 is our tribute to Jerry Garcia and his fusion of visual and musical expression. A slice of his painting “Curves & Lines” is printed on each pencil, which features our soft graphite that is ideal for both drawing and song writing.

Though he is best known as the lead guitarist and vocalist for the Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia was much more than a musician. His house at 710 Ashbury Street marked the heart of the enlightenment and expression that pulsed through San Francisco in the 1960s. It also fuelled Jerry’s profound exploration into painting and visual arts.

  • Each box contains 12 pencils
  • Soft graphite
  • “Curves & Lines” design by Jerry Garcia
  • Made in Japan from renewable Californian incense-cedar
  • Limited edition

The Blackwing pencil has a rich history dating back to 1934. In 2008, Palamino acquired the brand and began production of the Blackwing range as we know it today.

Blackwing pencils are famously known for their quality of graphite and the unique softness and smoothness of their lead. The Blackwing pencil has an instantly recognisable semi hexagonal body and interchangeable eraser. The original 602 pencil single handedly inspired the works of some of history’s greatest throughout the years. It is said that Disney animator Shamus Culhaneasked to be buried with his Blackwing 602.
