Limited Edition – Blackwing Volume 56 Pencil
The latest (well, not quite the latest as the new Volume 344 has just been announced, but this is pretty new) Blackwing pencil is the Volume 56. What is it and what does the 56 mean? You can watch the video and it will explain it all, but essentially it is based around Joe DiMaggio, star baseball player of his era from the 1930’s to the 1950’s. The 56 in the name comes from his most famous achievement, a still-unbeaten 56 game hitting streak in 1941. The design is a nice nod to his shirt design.
