This Graf von Faber-Castell Classic fountain pen comes in pernambuco wood, with platinized fittings and a finely ribbed barrel. The natural differences in grain and color mean that every writing instrument made from them is unique. Pernambuco wood is normally used for violin bows and is extremely hard and durable, and correspondingly difficult to work with. This fountain pen has a hand-made bicolored 18-carat gold nib with iridium tip, and fills via standard international cartridge/converter. The manufacturing process involves over a hundred steps, most of them carried out by hand. Handmade in Germany.

The feeling conveyed by a noble fountain pen with a gold nib remains incomparable. The slender shape and good balance of the Graf von Faber-Castell Classic pens mean that they sit comfortably in the hand. Well engineered mechanisms and robust details, such as the spring-loaded clip made of solid metal, ensure that the joy of using them is as timeless as the design.
