  • NOTEBOOKS WITH HERITAGE: First created in the 1930s, Blackwing built a cult following that included John Steinbeck and Chuck Jones, the latter proudly using Blackwing pencils to create Bugs Bunny and many other Looney Tunes characters. Discontinued in the ‘90s, we revived the Blackwing brand in 2010 for a new generation of writers, musicians, and others. Since then, we've introduced a line of notebooks in harmony with the same quality as our Blackwing Pencils.
  • HOW WE GIVE BACK: A portion of the sales from all Blackwing products benefit the Blackwing Foundation, which funds and develops art and music education at the K – 12 level.

Hello everyone today, I want to talk about the durability and quality of this Blackwing slate notebook. So I did an original review a few years ago and took me a while to get around using this notebook and I’m finally done using it – and I just finished it this week and yeah. It took me about a year to fill it up and I must say I’m really impressed with the quality of this notebook. It has held up extremely well, as you can see, it almost looks still like brand new and really great condition. There’S the cover see the stitching here, everything’s still like in perfect condition, and I did take this notebook on a few trips and I did not baby it.

I threw it around in my bags and stuff here’s the, the bookmark still looks almost brand new too and there’s an elastic grin. I don’t use the elastic all that much in terms of just closing the notebook, but you can see it’s still super tight and not dangling at all, and what I love about this notebook, the most it sets it apart from other notebooks, is that there is an Elastic for pens – and it’s still really tight too, and i actually use this quite a bit, and i love that the pen is right here on the side and actually prefer it on this side and this side. For some reason, I don’t know why. I don’t know just looks a little tighter and, especially it comes in handy because this is a hardcover notebook, because when you do this, as you know, the hardcover notebook it’s kind of hard to just keep the pen in there and the notebook will always stay Kind of open, so it’s great to have a pen loop on the side that you can use, just trying to think what else to tell you about this notebook. As I said, I’m really really impressed with the quality.

I really enjoyed writing on the paper. It gives you a really smooth riding experience. I think it’s 100 GSM papers, it’s a little thicker, but it has a nice little feel to it. It feels a little coated, but not too much but still really smooth paper. If you want to know any details about this notebook, I will link my original review in the description.

It shows you all the details, including the dimensions and all that good stuff and black wings since has come out with an updated version of this notebook. I have reached out to them and asked them to send me another sample, so i can show you the differences and show you the new one. I believe it’s more of a true a5 now i don’t know what else has changed. As i said, i would have to do a comparison, so maybe they’ll get back to me and i can show you the updated version as well. In the meantime, I highly recommend this notebook I really enjoyed using it.
