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 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. 

A portion of every pack sold will benefit the Ravi Shankar Foundation and their mission to "preserve the diversity of cultures and richness of their arts." Learn more about the pencil and the foundation here.

GETTING STARTED

If you're new to the world of pencils and are wondering where to get started, we think the Blackwing is a great gateway pencil. It's the pencil that got most of us hooked on wood and graphite, and we think it will do the same for you.

If you've been bit by the pencil bug and want to explore beyond Blackwing, we have a curated selection of graphite pencils and color pencils for you to choose from.
