IN STOCK and shipping!
The latest Blackwing Volumes is all about the Mars Rover Mission. In 2020, NASA will send a rover to Mars to search for evidence of ancient Martian life while testing technologies for future human expeditions. While the engineering designs for the rover and its various instruments are finalized in CAD, its revolutionary robotic arm and zoom-enabled cameras – the first of their kind to be sent to another planet – were first conceptualized in drawings by the team at Motiv Space Systems using Blackwing pencils.
The Blackwing 4 is a tribute to Mars and the upcoming rover mission. It features a rust-colored lacquer and sand-textured finish inspired by the surface of the fourth planet. It also features Blackwing's first ever dune bronze ferrule, a cream imprint and eraser, and our soft graphite.
Each of the "Volumes" pencils is a special edition. They are inspired by unique places and people. Palomino Blackwing Pencils are hailed as the best writing pencil in the world. They are known for their replaceable eraser, quality graphic, and legendary fans. And let's not forget the unmatched quality of the pencil that truly gives you a writing "experience" where most other pencils are just...pencils.
