Care Instructions

Chemicals will weaken the leather over time. Be patient. Its ruggedness will grow in character with you.

Don't be afraid of a scuff. Lick your finger. Rub it in. The oils from your skin shape the patina's look over time. So go ahead. Handle it!

Avoid leaving leather for extended periods of time in direct sunlight or extreme heat. We recommend Rustico's Custom Designed Leather Cleanerfor additional leather cleaning and conditioning.

My love for pencil drawing reborn

Best bang for your buck with this set. A total steal. Best sharpener of my life! quality caps, and erasers. And the pencils are so just ..everything you expect them to be. Worth the hype ;) I tend to like the darker graphite, so LOVE the black matte. But then the all the others are so fabulous as well I can’t decide which one I want to carry with me in my
purse, for my “Go to” Notes/drawings of the day. Just wow. The pencils glide on the paper so smooth and fast your pencil almost gets ahead of ya. Haha. A super good problem ;)
Love everything so much, I even ended up signing up for the year box subscription for a little birthday gift for
Myself. 😎❤️ (Oh! Also! They gave me a gift card in my box, with my purchase, so I was super impressed and of course went back for more!!! Who needs gas and food, (I know. Trust me. So any discount is EXTRA appreciated) when you have a good deal on the worlds best pencils? ;)

Starter set

The starter set is a great way to "sample" which version of the blackwing collection you like best. My only negative thoughts are that the set I ordered was supposed to include pencil caps but did not. It took some communication but Rustico made it right. I am now a satisfied customer once again.

Unique Gift

When a gift is a surprise it should be a Surprise❣️ I like gift shopping for the unexpected with quality. Rustico never disappoints with either of those descriptions. The birthday gift arrived gift wrapped and on time. I’m happy.
