Description Full Product Specifications
 
Released in December 2018, the Blackwing Volumes 4 limited edition Blackwing pencil is a tribute to Mars and its upcoming rover mission in 2020. The Volume 4 takes its namesake from Mars, the fourth planet from the Sun.

The included insert presents an image of our solar system with a timeline of the various exploratory missions NASA has launched, including the planned 2020 mission.

From the back of the slipcover:

In 2020, NASA will send a rover to Mars to search for evidence of ancient Martian life while testing technologies for future human expeditions. While the engineering designs for the rover are finalized in CAD, its revolutionary robotic arm and zoom-enabled cameras - the first of their kind to be sent to another planet - were first conceptualized in drawings by the team at Motiv Space Systems using Blackwing pencils.

Earlier this year, Motiv delivered their assemblies based on these drawings to begin integration onto the rover. In 2020, they will join the Wright brothers' wrapping paper sketches and Katherine Johnson's calculations as examples of the pencil's ability to help us reach the sky, space and beyond.

The Blackwing 4 is a tribute to Mars and the upcoming rover mission. It features a rust-colored lacquer and sand-textured finish inspired by the surface of the fourth planet. It also features our first ever dune bronze ferrule, a cream imprint and eraser, and our soft graphite.
