Blackwing Slate Review

blackwing slate notebook 9

  I still love writing with pen, pencil and paper. Many people call it “Analog” writing. No Batteries. No Charging. Blackout Proof. What’s not to like? For me, I’ve carried many notebooks over the years, but the Blackwing Slate (dot grid style) is the best I’ve used. It even comes with the legendary Blackwing 602 pencil in a holder in the spine, so ...
