Blackwing Graphite Pencil Volume 3
- In June of 1966, George Harrison met maestro Ravi Shankar in Bath, England. Harrison asked Ravi to teach him how to play the sitar, a task Ravi agreed to only after considerable hesitation. Their collaboration resulted in an explosion in the popularity of classical Indian music and culture in the United States and around the world.
- The Blackwing Volume 3 is a tribute to Ravi Shankar on his 100th birthday. It features Blackwing's extra-firm graphite and a matte turmeric finish accented with a pattern inspired by one of Ravi’s iconic sitars. The pattern prominently features the ॐ (Om), a sacred Sanskrit symbol with three phonetic components that correlate to the waking, dream, and unconscious states of being.
- Blackwing has also enlisted the help of some very special artists to tell this pencil's story at launch. Thanks to their support, this release will have a PR push unlike any pencil they’ve done before. There will be a world-wide buzz about this pencil, which we hope translates to more sales for you!
- This price is for 12 pencils, box is included.
