Blackwing Volume 73 Limited Edition (Set of 12)Sold Out
Lake Tahoe's iconic blue colour started to fade in the 1960s, and its Secchi depth (a unit used to measure clarity) fell to 66.6 feet by 1997. Conservation efforts, have successfully started to bring Lake Tahoe back to its beautiful blue shade.
Blackwing 73 honours Lake Tahoe and the art and literary works the lake has inspired. Each pencil is a beautiful Tahoe blue and features a raised texture that nods to the lake’s topography. The pencil is numbered 73 ...Lake Tahoe’s last measured Secchi depth of 73 feet. Blackwing 73 also sports a silver ferrule, white eraser, white imprint and a smooth soft graphite formulation. Blackwing 73 is very rare as it's sold out many places but we have some precious pencils left.
