Blackwing pencils are famous for their quality of graphite, craftsmanship and iconic shape. The Blackwing Vol. 3 limited edition pencil is wonderfully vibrant tribute to Ravi Shankar on his 100th birthday.
Each pencil features a matte turmeric finish accentuated with a pattern inspired by one of Ravi's iconic sitars. The pattern prominently features the Sanskrit "Om" symbol that has three phonetic components correlating to the waking, dream and unconscious states of being. Translated from Hindi, Ravi means "sun, hence the pencil's gold imprint and ferrule.
The limited edition set comes as a pack of 12 pencils, neatly presented in Blackwing's smart new packaging. Each pencil is finished with a bright yellow rubber and the graphite is extra firm.
