Palomino Blackwing Volume 530



This limited edition Palomino Blackwing 'Volume 530' set of 12 premium graphite formulation pencils celebrates the Gold Rush of 1848 in California. This defining moment was encapsulated by the state's motto - "Eureka! I have found it!"

The number 530 pays tribute to Sutter's Mill, California Historical Site No. 530, where gold was first discovered. During the Gold Rush, the state formed its identity as a melting pot of people, cultures and ideas that persists to this day. This moment of self-discovery has been described as California's "eureka moment".

Palomino believe there is a similar moment in the creative process when the rest of the world fades away and a project's singular objective becomes clear. Whether it's a songwriter finding the perfect melody for a lyric or a painter being struck by inspiration, these moments help define both the artist and their work. The Blackwing 530 celebrates California's rich cultural history and these eureka moments of the creative process. The 530's gold barrel and striped gold ferrule symbolise the feeling of "striking gold" when that moment hits.

Made in Japan with Genuine Incense Cedar, it is amazingly smooth and beautiful. Suits sketching, drawing, shading.
