Blackwing 16.2 is a tribute to mathematician, writer and visionary Ada Lovelace. The pencil features a matte white finish and matte black ferrule inspired by the simple styling of early personal computers. It features the firm graphite formulation ideal for both writing and mathematics. The number 16.2 is a nod to the Analytical Engine’s storage capacity of 16.2 kB (0.00005% the storage of the average smartphone) and the backside of each pencil bears a binary pattern stamp of the initials she used to sign her work, AAL.
Each box contains 12 premium graphite pencils, crafted from Genuine Incense-cedar
The unique and iconic ferrule allows you to extend and replace its eraser after extensive use and even "hack" your pencil to give it a custom look with replacements in a variety of colors
