The fountain pens, roller-ball pens, propelling pencils and ballpoints in the Graf von Faber-Castell Classic Collection are designed as matchings sets and available in several variants. Platinum is more precious than gold and will not oxidate. For some people, silver has never lost its appeal. The Graf von Faber-Castell writing instruments of Sterling silver take this into account. They can be recognised by the double crown on the cap and the hallmark, and have a field for individual engraving. The connoisseur will enjoy the typical matt silver gloss and looks forward to the patina arising from frequent use.
In 1761, Kaspar Faber started to produce pencils in Stein, near Nuremberg. When the fourth generation,Baron Lothar von Faber, took over the company in 1839 he turned the pencil into a true quality product and the world's first branded writing instrument. Over the centuries, he and his descendants created remarkable products. The result is the Graf von Faber-Castell Collection, a range of extraordinary writing instruments and accessories. They embody "Luxury in Simplicity" by combining selected materials, functionality and superb aesthetics.
