PALOMINO BLACKWING VOLUME 530 SINGLE

In 1848, while working at a sawmill in Coloma, California, James W. Marshall discovered gold flakes in the American River.
The Gold Rush was California’s defining moment, a moment immortalized by the state’s motto “Eureka! I have found it!” What California found, however, went beyond gold. The state found its identity as a melting pot of people, cultures and ideas that persists to this day. This moment of self-discovery was California’s true “eureka moment.”
There’s a similar moment in the creative process when the rest of the world fades and the project’s singular objective becomes clear. Whether it’s a songwriter finding the perfect melody for a lyric or a painter being struck by inspiration after weeks of aimless brushing, these moments help define both the artist and their work.
The Blackwing 530 celebrates these eureka moments of the creative process. Its gold barrel and striped gold ferrule symbolize the feeling of “striking gold” when that moment hits. The model number 530 is a tribute to Sutter’s Mill, California Historical Site No. 530, where gold was first discovered.
