Blackwing for TWA Hotel Pencil Sharpener


Never lose your edge: This limited edition Blackwing for TWA sharpener keeps your Blackwing pencils from reaching point break with a two-step process — it files the wood, then the graphite core. Though it makes a sharp gift when paired with our Blackwing for TWA Hotel pencil set, the sharpener also works with a No. 2.

Blackwing’s roots go back to the 1930s, when the company’s promise of “Half the Pressure, Twice the Speed” made its writing instruments a favorite of stenographers. Over the years, the pencil with the unique rectangular eraser has become synonymous with quality for writers, illustrators and musicians alike. In 1998, Blackwing was discontinued, but not forgotten. Founder Charles Berolzheimer reintroduced Blackwing in 2010. The pencils are made with genuine California incense-cedar and premium Japanese graphite.
