Blackwing Pearl

On a recent visit to Sydney I came across a newsagency that sold items that seemed to be of a higher quality or calibre than your standard, run-of-the-mill stationery items. I found a stand that contained a range of Blackwing Pencils. Blackwing are either iconic or cultic (depending if you like them or not).

This particular newsagency had a range of Blackwings including the standard, 602, Pearl and the 725. I opted for a Pearl and set of replacement erasers. The Blackwing Pearl has been sharpened but is yet to be put to any significant work.
