Blackwing Slate Notebook
The Slate was designed to be our everyday Blackwing pencil companion, and it still fulfills that role. A hardcover, medium-format notebook, the Slate is the most versatile notebook in our family, suited to tackle any task you can throw at it. What separates the Slate from the herd of similarly-sized notebooks are the unique features you won’t find in any other notebook.
Each Slate features a unique dual-sewn binding that gives it a soft spine, allowing it to lay completely flat when opened. The Slate also features a built-in pencil loop that comes loaded with a Blackwing 602 pencil, so you’ll always have a pencil handy. Each notebook measures 5.5 inches x 7.5 inches and contains 160 pages of ruled, blank or dot-grid 100GSM ivory paper. Like all of our notebooks, the Slate features our signature matte black finish.
