Blackwing Volume 344: A Peek.

I know not everyone has them already. So I won’t put a picture until after the jump.

The announcement comes tomorrow. Somehow, I was lucky enough to get mine on the East Coast today, in the first wave.


This is easily my second favorite Volumes edition so far. The 211, with that natural finish and now its rarity, is likely impossible to beat. This is a gorgeous pencil. It screams AUTUMN! The subscriber extra is really a treat. And the tribute is amazing. After pointing out that new logo, with a refined font and three little cedar trees, I won’t say any more, lest I spoil it all too much and too early.

  1. Relieved they finally created one inspired by the work of a woman. I was considering cancelling my subscription. I hope for more of that going forward.

  2. I can’t wait to get mine. Are they true red/black…they look more orange/brown. (Autumnal for sure) Either way it’s lovely. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thanks for the review Johnny…Do you think this is an original graphite formulation or is this a “re-paint” of a 602, MMX, or Pearl???

    I’m with you on the logo re-do, it looks great!
