Blackwing Volume 64 Point Guards
Whether to keep your sharp points safe in a pencil case or pocket or to just look smart on your desk right now!
Both useful and stylish, the Blackwing Point Guard is designed to ensure your Blackwing pencil gets to wherever you’re going in one piece.
Crafted out of lightweight aluminium, the Point Guard goes over the point of your Blackwing pencil, keeping it safe in your bag, pocket, or pencil roll. It will fit snugly on the end of your Blackwing pencil as soon as it reaches the unsharpened portion of the pencil. This means you only need to push the cap about 1/4 inch up the barrel of the pencil before it’s secure.
These limited edition point guards have been launched to complement the Blackwing 64 pencil which in itself is a tribute to comic books and the innovative minds that bring them to life.
During the Golden Age of comic books, many comic producers used a four colour printing process to colour the images in their books. This process utilised a combination of overlapping dots, lines, and precise angles to give comics their unique look.
These limited-edition Blackwing Volume 64 Point Guards pay homage to the 4-colour CMYK printing process. Each set comes with four Point Guards inspired by the four key CMYK colours: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Gloss Black.
