Volume 651 Limited Edition Pencil | Set of 12Regular price $ 34.00
Blackwing’s Volume 651 pencil is a tribute to martial artist and movie star Bruce Lee. It honors his work as a martial arts instructor and philosopher, and the art of Jeet Kune Do that he created, an expression of martial arts celebrating simplicity, directness, and freedom. The number 651 is taken from Lee's first formal school at 651 S. Weller Street in Seattle.
In a note to his students, Bruce Lee wrote “the art of Jeet Kune Do is simply to simplify.” 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.”
