DEC 2018: The 15th release in Blackwing’s Volumes series, the Blackwing 4 is a tribute to Mars and the recent rover mission. It features a rust-colored lacquer and sand textured finish inspired by the surface of the fourth planet. It also features the first ever dune bronze ferrule, a cream imprint and eraser, and soft graphite. Expressly for my collector friends, a single Blackwing Volumes 4!
