Palomino Blackwing 602 pencil review11 May 2014
This is another lovely pencil from Palomino.
The build quality is outstanding. I still think the adjustable eraser is gimmicky but it does work reasonably well and it does give the pencil some additional character.
The old 602 motto ‘Half the Pressure, Twice the Speed’ is printed on the side. You will either enjoy this nod to the past or think it’s another gimmick. I’m more inclined to the latter but that’s just me.
This is a wonderful pencil to write with. It’s dark enough and very smooth. It holds its point quite well so there’s no need to sharpen it every other word.
The Blackwing 602 is a lovely pencil. It exudes quality and it writes well.
