The Blackwing 3 is a tribute to Ravi Shankar on his 100th birthday. It features 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. The Om was an important symbol to Ravi, and served as a constant reminder of the contemplative, spiritual nature of his music. Translated from Hindi, Ravi means "sun", and this pencils gold imprint and ferrule are a meditation on the light he brought into the world through his music and spirit.
