The Classic collection by Graf von Faber-Castell is elaborately finished in the unusual combination of fine metals and wood. The special grain to which the reddish-brown veined snakewood owes its name is a magical feature – this wood is among the most expensive in the world and is especially prized in instrument making and exclusive works of art. The natural differences in grain and colour mean that every writing instrument made from them is unique.
To match the date the Faber-Castell company was founded in 1761, this exclusive edition is limited to 1,761 pieces per writing instrument.
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.
