In 1837, Swiss teacher Rodolphe Töpffer published a collection of illustrated stories chronicling the adventures of a character named Mr. Vieux Bois. Each page featured six panels with images and captions to convey the action and dialogue. It was unlike anything readers had seen.

Rodolphe Töpffer had created the world’s first comic book.

In the 200 years since, comic books have evolved from a niche medium to a comprehensive storytelling device. Comic book writers, pencilers, inkers, letterers, and colorists have birthed iconic characters, explored profound topics, and deftly blurred the lines between pop-culture and art.

The Blackwing 64 is a tribute to comic books and the minds that bring them to life. Each pencil features a halftone design that’s a nod to the 64 color palette utilized in some of the earliest comics. It also features a unique doubled imprint inspired by comic book lettering. Its firm graphite is perfect for sketching a new character concept or writing a list of their super powers.

These limited-edition Blackwing Volume 64 Point Guards pay homage to the 4-color CMYK printing process. Each set comes with four Point Guards inspired by the four key CMYK colors: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Gloss Black.

Blackwing Point Guards are designed to make sure your pencils stay sharp in your pocket, carry-on, bike bag, and everywhere else. Your pencil point "floats" inside of the Point Guard so the tip never comes in contact with any surface, no matter how bumpy the journey may be.

The Blackwing Point Guard is designed to ensure your Blackwing pencil gets wherever you’re going in one piece. Crafted out of lightweight, machined aluminum, the Point Guard goes over the point of your Blackwing pencil, keeping it safe in your bag, pocket, or pencil roll. The tip of your pencil “floats” inside the cap to protect your point against unexpected drops or jams.


The (Il)Legal Pad is our take on the 8.5” x 11” legal pad. It features 50 sheets of high-quality 80 GSM ivory paper, similar to the paper found in our Slate notebooks. The pages are sewn-bound and perforated, so they only tear away when you want them to. It comes in a set of 2.

John Steinbeck famously used legal pads to pencil his novels. What will you create with yours?
