I want to thank Pencils.com for sponsoring Boing Boing. You might be aware that I love their Blackwing 602 pencil. Recently Pencils.com introduced a new Blackwing model: the Pearl. I have to say this is my favorite Blackwing yet. The graphite is ever-so-slightly softer than the 602, making a rich dark line with very little pressure. It's perfect!
My daughters swiped the 12-pack of Pearls I ordered, and I had to get another. I'm asking my wife to buy me a gross for my birthday.
