Re: Low Tech Pencil Fascination

Yes on the blackwing pencils being wood. They're just pencils, but with nice wood, nice smooth waxed lead, nice lacquer and a good fit.

For lack of a better way to put it, they're just a pencil that functions well and feels good, too.

The range of quality is so broad that you can get barely tolerable to blackwing. If you get off center lead on two sharpeners, the lead is probably just off center.
