The Blackwing 4 is a tribute to Mars and the upcoming rover mission. The Rover's revolutionary robotic arm and zoom-enabled cameras - the first of their kind to be sent to another planet - were first conceptualized for NASA by the team at Motiv Space Systems using Blackwing pencils.
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 bronze ferrule, a cream imprint and eraser, and soft graphite.
The Blackwing Volumes series are all limited edition and once they are gone they are GONE!
