Mirado Black Warrior Pencil

A Pencil With Style!

Black Warrior PencilsI haven’t quite decided what I love most about this pencil the fact that it’s black in finish with the gold lettering, that it bears two gold hearts (which are a favorite or mine), it’s made with cedar wood, smells good, writes smoothly and always in my experience sharpens to a fine point or the fact that it blows my mind that it carries the name Black Warrior! Kudos to Paper Mate!!!

In this day and age where everyone wants to make a statement fashion or otherwise this pencil fits the task. I never had so many people comment on my pencil in life. Looks great in your jacket pocket and just down right fashion forward while writing!
I know you’re probably thinking who the heck cares about a pencil let alone takes the time to write about it. Hopefully with all the writers out there, there’s one or two that still appreciate a good old pencil and paper versa the keyboard on the smart phone, tablet or iPad every now and then.

This Pencil Is A Warrior

I guess I’m just old school like that…often times things cross my mind that we used in the yester years some I’m glad that a better solution was developed but other I truly miss. The art of letter writing happens to be one of the oldie but goodie things that I use to do that I miss. I loved having pen pals across the country that I could drop a line (letter/note). I would often drop by the card shop and spend hours picking out cards to pop in the mail to a friend to put a smile on their face. Of course when I would write a short note in the card and sign my name I never used a pencil but you better know a cute ball point pen was in hand and a wax seal or sticker always made its way to the back of the envelope.

Is the Pencil A Thing Of The Past For You?

Any who, we’re talking pencils not pens. So I’ve made it a point to take pencil to paper this year, I’ll write letters and when I want to flush out a thought or maybe just plain ol doodle… yes doodle, I’ll be sure to do it with my Paper Mate Mirado Black Warrior it just feels so good in my hand!!


I have never seen a pencil romanticized this way. As a poet, who has been at many poetry events, I have heard the art of writing, pen, pencil, and paper mentioned, but never like this. LOL. You know, in school, my penmanship was terrible. So though I do appreciate a nice pen, pencil and paper, I do love my gadgets. All the same, your post did help me share in your sentiment. Perhaps I will start to write a real letter here and there. 🙂

I break pencils, consistently. But this one IS pretty… I’m going to get one and give myself a chance to NOT break it!

I use pencils every day at work. Of course, I sign documents and stuff in pen, but I love using pencils. I like that you send out handwritten notes.
