Blackwing Natural pencil

I was running low on pencils at work when @hjertnes told me about the new Blackwing Naturals.

I find the graphite is too soft in the very popular Blackwing 602s. The Naturals use extra-firm Japanese graphite” which should be an improvement. I think they look terrific, so I ordered a box.

The downside is that I always cut off those sharp, unwieldy erasers. I’m looking forward to trying the new Naturals.
