Blackwing Starting Point Set
The Blackwing Starting Point Set is the perfect gift for any artist or maker in your life. Every pencil is made of graphite and wood, but only Blackwing pencils combine the best graphite in the world, the best wood in the world, and generations of craftsmanship to create an exceptional pencil. When you’re looking for the perfect tool to write a song, sketch a landscape, or brainstorm a business idea, Blackwing has your back.
Each set includes the following:
- 4 Blackwing pencils with a range of Soft, Balanced, Firm and Extra-firm graphite
- 2 Point Guards that keep your pencil from breaking on the go
- 1 Black Long Point Sharpener that uses a two-step process to first sharpen the wood before precision sharpening the graphite
- 2 packs of our Replacement Erasers to ensure your pencil is always functional
At Interior Monologue, we believe handmade is the best made. Our mission is to provide a collection of makers that you can trust – handmade excellence and ethical production. We think it’s important to understand who made the things we love. Our hope is that this collection connects you directly with our favorite makers and their one of a kind stories.
That’s why a portion of every Blackwing sale benefits music and arts education through the Blackwing Foundation, and why we use projects like Blackwing Music to shine a spotlight on artists who deserve attention. The goal is to develop and support innovative partnerships that have a sustainable, positive impact on arts and music participation and learning at the K-12 educational level.
MAKER STORY: Blackwing
Blackwing taps into the rich satisfaction that comes from using an old fashioned tool to dream big. They make practical instruments for creative-minded people. By valuing the creative process as much as the product itself, Blackwing brings a much needed reminder to the power of analog. As both a brand and foundation, they are in the business of making the world a better place by way of excellence. To put it simply, Blackwing believes in the power of arts and music, as both a creative outlet and as an educational tool. That’s why a portion of every Blackwing sale benefits music and arts education through the Blackwing Foundation.
Blackwing believes participation in a broad arts and music curriculum is central to both the academic and social development of our youth. Unfortunately, curricular arts studies are often among the first programs cut in our public schools, despite the strong positive correlation between arts and music engagement and elevated academic performance.
In 2010, the Blackwing brand was revived by the team at California Cedar Products Company, a leading supplier of wood for making pencils. With pencil industry roots dating back to the mid 19th century and a company history that dates back to 1917, Blackwing products are now sold in nearly 1500 stores worldwide. Every pencil is made of graphite and wood. Only Blackwing pencils combine the best graphite in the world, the best wood in the world, and generations of craftsmanship to create an exceptional pencil with an exceptional cause.
