The Blackwing pencil comes back


The net is abuzz with the news that the venerable Blackwing pencils are about to make a comeback. In a post at BoingBoing, our friend Mark Frauenfelder quoted a letter from the California Cedar Products Company about their acquisition of the trademark.

I share Mark's high hopes "that the new Blackwing will live up to the slogan that was stamped in gold foil on the original: "Half the Pressure, Twice the Speed."
