Blackwing Volumes - Vol. 42
The Blackwing 42 honors the inspiring life and career of Jackie Robinson, who broke the color barrier when he was called up to play in the MLB. The red 42 is a nod to Robinson's iconic jersey number, and the white barrel, blue imprint and eraser, and road gray ferrule all drawn from his Dodgers uniform. The 42 should be a favorite creative tool for anyone willing to push boundaries and challenge norms.

After the initial success of Cal Cedar's Palomino graded graphite pencils, they were able to revive the legendary Blackwing pencil. The Blackwing was originally a Eberhart-Faber pencil that had been discontinued and later obtained cult status as pencil aficionados were paying exorbitant amounts at auction for dead stock. The Blackwing had gained a reputation as the pencil of choice for Grammy, Emmy, Pulitzer and Academy Award winners, and now they have become available to a whole new generation of creatives.
