A beautiful Limited Edition from Blackwing. Here is the backstory: "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, the pattern is inspired by one of Ravi’s iconic sitars and prominently features the ॐ (Om), a sacred Sanskrit symbol with three phonetic components that correlate to the waking, dream, and unconscious states of being.
