Blackwing pencils were favored by award winning creators throughout the 20th century. Despite their cult following they were discontinued in the 1990s. In 2010, they were brought back for a new generation of writers, musicians and others seeking a more natural existence. Each pencil is crafted with California Incense-cedar and premium Japanese graphite. Blackwing Slate (journal) is the ultimate Blackwing pencil companion. Each Slate features 160 pages of high-quality, 100GSM paper, a durable dual-sewn binding, wear-resistant polymer hardcover, canvas spine and unique pencil holster that comes loaded with a Blackwing pencil. The Point guard is designed to make sure your Blackwing pencil stays sharp in your pocket or storage.
*A portion of every Blackwing sale benefits music and arts education in schools.
