Released in June 2017, the ninth “Volumes” series limited edition Blackwing pencils, the Blackwing 73, pays tribute to Lake Tahoe, taking its namesake from the lake's last measured Secchi depth of 73 feet.

From the included insert:

You cannot fully understand a place or the people living in it without understanding the paintings, writings and songs created on its soil. Our local natural wonder of Lake Tahoe is a perfect example. The landscape paintings of Albert Bierstadt, the photographs of Ansel Adams and the intricate baskets of Dat-So-La-Lee all make up the tapestry of Lake Tahoe's cultural identity. These works and the works of countless other artists tell of a place of both breathtaking natural beauty and perilous unpredictability; a place that stands at the front line of the age-old conflicts between the natural world and the encroachment of civilization.

As a result of human ambition, the lake's signature blue color began to disappear in the 1960s and its Secchi depth (a unit used to measure clarity) plummeted to 66.6 feet by 1997. The lake's striking beauty, which had been a source of inspiration pulled straight from the 19th century Romantics, was fading. Fortunately, through aggressive conservation efforts, the lake has begun to regain its remarkable clarity.

Blackwing 73 celebrates Lake Tahoe and other landmarks that have had a comparable impact on arts and society. Each pencil features a Tahoe blue finish and raised texture that mimics the lake's topography. The number 73 references Lake Tahoe's last measured Secchi depth of 73 feet. Each pencil features a silver ferrule, white eraser, white imprint and our soft graphite formulation.

The Palomino Blackwing 73. It’s more than just a pencil, it’s an experience.

Wonderful experience. May 15, 2018
Reviewer: Oanh Nguyen  
The shipment was speedy, received it even in the weekend. The package was very well put together, felt it was personal. Even received a bookmark and a piece of candy. The receipt had a hand written thank you on it which I very much appreciate. I would definitely order more in the future.
