Blackwing Graphite Pencil Volume 223 - Special Edition

"all you can write is what you see."

On Feb. 23, 1940, Woody Guthrie made that note on the bottom of the page where he wrote the lyrics to the song that would become "This Land is Your Land", an iconic folk song that still resonates today. Blackwing's Volume 223 pays tribute to that legendary moment of American history, and Guthrie's enduring legacy as America's Dust Bowl poet laureate.

The Volume 223 pencils pay tribute to Guthrie's dreamlike vision of America, matching a ribbon of highway with a golden valley and a bright blue strip of endless skyway, capped off with a matte black ferrule and an earth-toned eraser in keeping with the dusty trails he traveled.
