Additional Info

Originally made by Eberhard-Faber and dating back to the 1930's, the Blackwing 602 Pencil quickly rose in prominence and was loved by multiple famous writers and illustrators. By the late 1990's it had been discontinued, but not forgotten - the 602 had reached cult status. So much so, that Palomino founder and CEO Charles Berolzheimer, whose pencil industry roots date back to the mid 19th century, re-introduced the Blackwing pencil, both in its original form (Blackwing 602) for devotees, writers and everyday users, as well as a modified version with a slightly softer lead for artists (Blackwing). Best of all, Palomino developed the Blackwing brand to now include sketchbooks, notebooks, sharpeners, and more.

Good product but a "lay open" binding would be better
Good size, and good quality paper. I use a fountain pen - no bleeding and ink dries fast. Don't know if its possible, but I would prefer a binding allowing the journal to remain open at the page selected without my having to hold it open. Don't know if that's possible outside of loose leaf which I don't think I would like. Some what pricey item. Could be a little less expensive.
ProsSize, good paper.
ConsBinding - would like it to stay open without holding it open.
