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.  The 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 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 symbol, a sacred Sanskrit with three phonetic components that correlate to the waking, dream and unconscious states of being.
