With colours, patterns and their extraordinary craftsmanship, the ladies’ lounge and Alexander’s office of the Faber-Castell castle inspired the fountain pens of our „Limited Edition Heritage”.
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.
Pieces of ancient wetland oak wood, each with an extremely beautiful grain served as a model for the ten plunger-action fountain pens of the “Pen of the Year 2012 Diamond Edition”. The structure of each piece of wood was captured in an elaborate procedure, and then cast in solid 18 carat (750) gold. Each fountain pen is unique.
