Blackwing Volumes 651 - Box of 12

The Blackwing 651 is a tribute to the legendary martial artist Bruce Lee. Simple and striking, each pencil features a black and yellow stripe design that takes its cues from the philosophies of Jeet Kune Do. The number 651 is derived from 651 S. Weller Street in Seattle, where Bruce Lee opened his first formal school. The extra-firm graphite is ideal for writing notes, including those to your future self, whenever inspiration strikes.

Despite his image as an international movie star, Bruce Lee was a philosopher at his core. His pockets contained everything from dance routines, to uplifting self-affirmations and deep life-shaping wisdoms. His crowning achievement may have been his art known as Jeet Kune Do.

In a note to his students, Bruce Lee wrote “the art of Jeet Kune Do is simply to simplify.” A pioneer, he believed in honesty in all actions and championed a freedom of expression that had never been seen in the world of martial arts. Jeet Kune Do was designed for combat, but its tenets can be applied to the challenges of everyday life; “using no way as way; having no limitation as limitation.”

These pair well with the coordinating limited edition Vol. 651 report pad.
