The Blackwing 73 is the latest from the Palomino's limited Volumes series, and it is definitely a frontrunner for our favorite Volume so far. Tahoe blue, a raised texture inspired by a the lake's topography, a silver ferule, and a white imprint and eraser all add up to a fantastic pencil design. It comes with the same soft lead as the original Palomino Blackwing.
We also added the new white version of the Blackwing Long Point Pencil Sharpener. And for those who can't get enough of the Blackwing Volumes series, we still have a handful of last quarter's Blackwing 205.
