Blackwing Slate Lined Notebook
If you're looking for a great everyday notebook, the Slate series is what you want. Don't be fooled by its simple look–this notebook has a ton of impressive features.
A hardcover, medium-format notebook, the Slate comes from the same folks who make Blackwing pencils, known for their quality and craftsmanship. Each Slate notebook features a dual-sewn binding that gives it a soft spine, allowing it to lay completely flat when opened.
The best part? Each notebook has a built-in pencil loop that comes loaded with a corresponding Blackwing pencil (your choice of the original Blackwing, the 602, or the Pearl). It's incredibly innovative and convenient. Each notebook has 160 pages of ruled paper, and a wonderful soft matte finish.
Having trouble deciding which is right for you? We recommend choosing by your pencil preference:
Blackwing: Soft graphite, great for sketches and drawings
Blackwing 602: Its motto is "half the pressure, twice the speed," hinting at the durability of the firm graphite, making it great for writing
Blackwing Pearl: The most versatile option, striking a perfect balance between the soft Blackwing graphite and the firm 602 option
