Drawing Pencils

I'm very sad. I just learned that my favorite drawing pencil, the blackwing 602, is no longer being made. Apparently production stopped years ago, in 2001. I had plenty of pencils then, too many in fact, so I was blissfully unaware. I realized this morning that all my pencils were getting to the short and stubby side so I decided it might be time to put in an order and couldn't figure out why there weren't any readily available. A quick web search turned up this and this.

I've reluctantly placed an order for the next best thing.
