Stay Sharp
This special edition pencil kit is the result of a collaboration between two companies focused on creating the best tools for your space & your work. Custom designed minimalist pencils and a stand that does more than just display, with integrated sharpening, tip-protection, and an aesthetic that keeps you inspired.

Kit includes: Wood stand, 12 custom pencils, and one sharpener
Clean & Composed
Blackwing's roots go back to the 1930's—their iconic pencils are made from incense-cedar and premium Japanese graphite, for an unparalleled writing experience. We wanted to inject the Grovemade aesthetic, and worked together to design a modern, clean look that pushes the stationery genre ahead and integrates into your workspace or studio.
The Blackwing pencil sharpener.
Sharp, with a Twist
The Blackwing sharpener is made of machined aluminum, with a custom profile German steel blade that creates a durable, long curved point. The freshly sharpened tips are protected by a machined cut out at the base of the stand.
