from How Twitter Made Handwriting Cool. (telegraph uk)
A few years ago, a number of pencil bloggers announced that the discontinued Eberhard-Faber Blackwing 602 was, not to put too fine a point on it, the greatest pencil ever. A sleek black object with an oversized ferrule (eraser holder) and the charismatic epithet, ‘half the pressure, twice the speed’ embossed on its shaft, it was declared ‘the world’s best pencil’ by American author Joseph Finder. 

Pencil bloggers.  I'm beginning to think that this old blog isn't specific enough for these modern fetishist times.
