Not a pencil that I have in my collection, unfortunately, but I was reminded of by the publicity surrounding the launch of the Palomino BlackWing last month.
Interesting to see another pencil with a pull-out and replacable eraser. I imagine pencil owners chopped up erasers to create a piece that would fit into the ferrule? I wonder if the ferrules for these pencils were the same component, or manfactured centrally.
So, a question for pencil collectors - are there any other pencils, other than the Van Dyke and the Blackwing, with this feature? If you have an example of both, how do the ferrules compare?
