Blackwing Volume 42 Pencils

Blackwing's Volumes packs are released quarterly and feature limited edition pencils that celebrate the people, places and events that have defined our creative culture over time.

In 1947, Jackie Robinson was called up to the Major Leagues by the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking the color barrier and providing much needed momentum to the desegregation movement that extended well beyond baseball.

The Blackwing Volume 42 is a tribute to Jackie Robinson and those who pursue their passions, creative or otherwise, regardless of the obstacles in their way. It features Blackwing's balanced graphite, a blue imprint and eraser, road gray ferrule, and the iconic red 42.
