Written by Catherine on Friday 3 July 2020 in Writing instruments

The Blackwing Vol.3 is a tribute to Ravi Shankar on his 100th birthday. It features our 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 Om a sacred Sanskrit symbol with three phonetic components that correlate to the waking, dream, and unconscious states of being.

Their collaboration resulted in the explosive popularity of classical Indian music and culture in the United States and around the world.
