This is a quality, aluminum-framed blackboard with full-length chalk rail. It has a ceramic finish on a steel substrate, providing a thick texture for rich chalk marks, excellent erasing qualities, and an aluminum foil moisture barrier. Comes with a partial box of the world's best chalk (Hagamoro), two erasers, and mounting brackets (will need a couple screws from a hardware store). Handmade, they will literally outlast a lifetime, and shipping is nuts from a quality manufacturer (nearest might be Vancouver). Will need sufficient transportation to pick up (a basic uhaul/home-depot cargo van is probably ideal, a long-box truck with some two-by-fours and ratchet straps could possibly work), I can help you load it into the truck, it is pretty heavy and very hard to move alone. Can't hang it at my new place and don't want to pay to store it.
