    Two threads in one day ....

    Had a load of post to go through when I got home. already opened my new pliers, just upgraded my phone to a Samsung S10 so im working on that getting all my stuff copied over and forgot I ordered these..

    They say they're the best pencils in the world so I thought I'd get a couple to see.
    So here you go -

    Palomino Blackwing.
    This is the pearl model so around a 2b or 3b

    I had to get it a friend so I brought two of them so one didn't feel alone..

    And then of course another friend to sharpen them to a super long point

    Just have to work out how I sharpen them now and then carry on with the phone transfer.

    I've always wanted a Blackwing and the limited editions are always so interesting. I use a lot of wooden pencils and I use a Koh-I-Noor branded KUM sharpener. Nice long point without the 2 stage system.

    Love it when you forget you bought stuff because it’s on the slow boat from China. Like you say it’s like Xmas when you get it

    I didnt realise there was a single stage long point sharpener, oh well.. I saw the sharpener on amazon so i ordered that while i was in Spain. It works well so money well spent. The pencils only cost me around £4 each, I could buy a box of 12 which are around £26 plus postage so a little cheaper but didnt want to spend too much.. I will probably end up buying a box, its like AAD but with pencils PAD lol

    It was about £2.50 and comes with a spare blade. Here is sharpened a General's 2B.
