Those are the reissued Blackwings. Still a good pencil, but the old ones were better.

 

They were all we used at animation studios back in the day and when I stopped animating I gave away hundreds. Think they're now getting $15 a stick on ebay.

I have yet to see a blind test confirming this. I have a feeling it is an opinion heavily influenced by nostalgia and the mystique of original anything. C'est la vie. They are pretty and that's what really matters :D

Think there have been a few Pepsi Challenges with the old and the new. Since everything new is shit I'll look back at the old ones fondly. They really were a beautiful pencil.

Was a very shitty cartoonist so I focused on art and experimental films then became an EFX supervisor.

Leather ones are nice but those legs would destroy rugs.
The second one has an ominous :"Contact for asking price" , which usually means we have such a stupid asking price... What is the angle of some sites that do not show prices? They r still going to be comparison shopped, they just make it inconvenient to do so for their potential customer.

The shop that has it for sale, had a similar one listed at a little under $5k, which isn't THAT bad.

Really though... it is a pretty ridiculous price for an ugly chair.
