Blackwing’s Volume XIX pencils honor the passage of the 19th amendment 100 years ago, which made it illegal to deny anyone the right to vote on the basis of sex. A tribute to the ongoing fight for voting rights in the United States and around the world, its purple barrel with a white and gold imprint was inspired by the suffrage flag, and its 36 stars represent the 36 states that ratified the amendment.
Like all Blackwing pencils, Volume XIX features incense-cedar casing, Japanese graphite, and an iconic refillable square eraser.
Blackwing empowers creativity by making quality pencils, notebooks and tools for creative-minded people; supporting deserving artists; and helping fund arts education with a portion of all their sales.
