Released in September 2018, the Blackwing Volumes 33 1/3 limited edition Blackwing pencil is a tribute to vinyl records with the name referencing the revolutions per minute (RPM) made by the most popular record size.

The included insert provides a timeline from 1877 when Thomas Edison was credited with inventing the wax phonograph, a precursor to the vinyl record, through 2018 when vinyl sales grew by double digits for the tenth straight year.

From the back of the slipcover:

From their introduction in the late 1800's, analog records have withstood the advent of radio, the rise and fall of CDs and MP3s, and the dawn of streaming. Rather than be displaced by these more convenient ways of consuming music, the vinyl record has instead shifted from an object of convenience to one of connection. And it has thrived in the process.

Just as the way we engage with pencils and notebooks is different from the way we interact with keyboards and touch screens, the way we engage with records is different from the way we interact with digital music. From the rich, uncompressed sound to the album art and liner notes, records tell a story both physically and sonically. According to music icon Henry Rollins, of all the ways to listen to music, "vinyl (best) represents what the musicians wanted you to hear." The vinyl experience not only creates a physical and emotional connection between music and people, it creates a connection between musicians and their fans.

The Blackwing 33 1/3 is a tribute to vinyl records. It features a matte black finish and matte black ferrule to go with its black imprint and black eraser. The gloss black foil banding near the grip was inspired by the grooves on a record.
