Description

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.

The fountain pen is equipped with a practical cartridge/converter system and a bicoloured 18-carat gold nib with iridium tip.

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.

    Despite this being my first G.v.F.C. the choice was a great one as I’d say it’s my joint favourite along with the metal guilloche.
    Mine is with an EF nib, but remains wonderfully smooth to write with. The wood is very dark with the etched lines being slightly lighter. Being wooden it brings a lovely natural warmth not found in their other non-wooden versions. The cap comes off with a 3/4 twist. The weight is well balanced if tail heavy and with a heavy cap I don’t enjoy posting the cap but I have no need to do so for the length as already comfortable as it is.
    If worried by the weight, I fully recommend looking to the guilloche /colours series which is about 5mm shorter and not as heavy.
