The Classic collection by Graf von Faber-Castell is elaborately finished in the unusual combination of fine metals and wood.
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. All four are available in reddish brown Pernambuco wood, matt black ebony, dark brown grenadilla wood or in a platinum-plated version. All three precious woods, i.e. Pernambuco which is normally used for violin bows, the very dark ebony as well as the grenadilla wood are extremely hard and durable, and correspendingly difficult to work. The natural variations in grain and colouring mean that every writing implement made from them is unique.
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.
