The Classic propelling ball pen by Graf von Faber-Castell is elaborately finished in the unusual combination of fine metals and wood.
The pen is available in reddish brown Pernambucco wood, matt black ebony, in dark brown grenadilla wood, black Macasser. All precious woods, ie 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 coloring mean that every writing implementation is made unique.
The third millennium, the age of electronic data transfer, is also paving the way for an entirely contrasting trend – a return to writing as it was cultivated in the 19th century.
