CENTURY DEEP ROOTS
In 2010, the Blackwing brand was revived by the team at California Cedar Products Company, a leading supplier of wood for making pencils. With pencil industry roots dating back to the mid 19th century and a company history that dates back to 1917, CalCedar has built a long tradition of excellence and unique supply relationships that now extend to the Blackwing pencils, notebooks and lifestyle products. Blackwing products are sold in nearly 1500 stores worldwide.
