June 2019: The 17th release in Blackwing’s Volumes series, the Blackwing 10 is a tribute to Nellie Bly — and investigative journalists like her. It features a matte grey newsprint finish, dark grey imprint, silver ferrule and dark grey eraser. Its extra-firm graphite is ideal for capturing notes in a reporter pad or completing a newspaper crossword. The number 10 represents the ten days Miss Bly spent undercover to investigate a story that has impacted countless lives. As always a single Blackwing Volumes 10 is available for my collector and user friends alike.
