Blackwing Volumes - Vol. 840
The Blackwing 840 pays tribute to Duke Kahanamoku, a native Hawaiian and Olympic swimmer who is credited with popularizing the sport of surfing. The 840 features a sea green barrel with a gold foil accent in the shape of the California coastline and a gold eraser clip. Kahanamoku popularized surfing along California’s 840 mile coast, but the lifestyle left in his wake has influenced people around the world.

After the initial success of Cal Cedar's 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.
