We know Faber-Castell more as pencil makers than anything else. But they also have a range of high-end exclusive pens to their credit. Each year the company comes out with an almost unattainable pen range and for 2012 it is Graf von Faber-Castell.
The combination of gold leaf and oak makes the Pen of the Year 2012 an extraordinarily luxurious fountain pen. Inscribed by hand, the 18-carat bicolour gold nib is available in sizes M, B and F. The individually numbered writing instruments come nestled safe in an exclusive jet-black wooden case. A certificate, signed personally by Ernst D. Feldmann, attests to the 24-carat leaf-gilding on the 1700 year old oak, as well as to the limited edition to 1500.
