This lovely pencil has a soft graphite core and is caoted with a rust-colored lacquer that has a sand-textured finish. The dune-colored aluminum ferrule holds a cream eraser. This pencil is finely crafted in Japan. I would use it on paper or with a very light hand on fabric.
Sold in a pack of 12 pencils.
Every limited edition Volumes set comes with a story. This is the story behind Volume 4:
In 2020, NASA will send a rover to Mars to search for evidence of ancient Martian life while testing technologies for future human expeditions. While the engineering designs for the rover and its various instruments are finalized in CAD, its revolutionary robotic arm and zoom-enabled cameras – the first of their kind to be sent to another planet – were first conceptualized in drawings by the team at Motiv Space Systems using Blackwing pencils.
The Blackwing 4 is a tribute to Mars and the upcoming rover mission. It features a rust-colored lacquer and sand-textured finish inspired by the surface of the fourth planet. It also features our first ever dune bronze ferrule, a cream imprint and eraser, and our soft graphite.
