Blackwing Volume 42
Blackwing Volume 42 pencils are dedicated to Jackie Robinson and everyone else who inspires people to pursue their dreams regardless of the obstacles in their way. Inspired by Robinson’s uniform, each pencil features a bright white finish, a metallic gray ferrule, a blue imprint and eraser, and a red 42—Robinson’s jersey number with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Blackwing pencils differ in the softness of the graphite core, which can be felt while writing and drawing. These pencils feature a balanced core which is smooth and dark yet holds a strong point. The pencils’ erasers are latex free, and replacement erasers are available in a variety of colors.
The Pencils come in a pack of 12.
It honors the life and career of Jackie Robinson, who broke the color barrier when he was called up to play in the MLB. The 42 should be a favorite creative tool for anyone willing to push boundaries and challenge norms.
