Graf von Faber-Castell proudly introduced this year’s newest and most remarkable Pen of the Year; the astonishing Pen of the Year 2012. This elegant and beautifully crafted writing instrument is made of ancient wetland oak and precious gold leafing. It is truly a exquisite masterpiece from the makers at Graf von Faber-Castell.
The antiquated wetland oak used for the base of the body in itself is a fated and extensive process. Each piece of wood is unique and has been buried as many as 8,000 years in the German wetlands. This process allows for each piece of wood to be unlike any other. Each piece is then delicately hand wrapped in 24-carat gold leafing, allowing the gold to intricately immerse itself in the graining of the oak barrel.
Each fountain pen nib is individually “run in” by hand, and is composed of 18 carat bi-color gold, and is available in either Fine, Medium, or Bold, and the metal fittings throughout are plated in 24 carat gold. A chessboard faceted Citrine gemstone is set on each and every cap, adding an additional look and feel of pure elegance.
Each Graf von Faber-Castell Pen of the Year 2012 comes individually numbered and comes in an collector deep black wooden case, along with a certificate attests to the 24-carat leaf-gilding. The collector’s case is made of linden wood and features a glass lid and two removable trays.
