Palomino Blackwing Volumes 3 (Pack of 12)

The Blackwing
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 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.


Also consider the Palomino Long-Point Sharpener to keep your points pointy. Eraser refills also available in a variety of colours.
