Blackwing pencils

(click on image to enlarge)

While waiting for my new Blackwing pencils (Volume #840) to arrive from Ontario, I thought I'd post a quick photo of the rest of my Blackwing collection (if you're wondering why these wooden pencils have a cult-like following, check out the little writeup I did on them here).

The numbers on the pencils refer to their Volume numbers and the Japanese graphite in them ranges from Soft to Extra-Firm (with Balanced and Firm in between), so there's something to please everyone. For more information on these iconic pencils, click on the official Blackwing link above, or go to Jet Pens' guide to Blackwing pencils.
