Too Many Words about Blackwing Pencils

@rnv Thanks for writing that post. I have a year's worth of Blackwing pencils via subscription, and I have my favorites, most of all just enjoy writing in pencil as much as I can.

@antonzuiker You’re welcome! I probably could have dialed the snark down a bit; I do like Blackwings, but compared to many of the other pencils I have, use, and love, they’re fairly unremarkable. They tend to suck the oxygen out of the room whenever pencils are discussed, eclipsing other pencils equally worthy of attention. In the end, though, as you say, it’s all about writing in pencil as much as possible.

@rexbarrett Thanks! I’ve decided to throw a quick profile of a different pencil each day all month long. Gotta do something to stay busy and at least partially distracted…

@rnv Picked up via @adders, and while I am no pencil enthusiast, I'm not sure what all the fuss about Blackwings is about. I like the Faber-Castell and Staedlers myself.
