Graf von Faber-Castell Pen of the Year 2008 Fountain Pen
[GF-PY08-FP]
The Pen of the Year 2008 fountain pen emphasizes the outstanding craftsmanship of the Graf von Faber-Castell collection. Each pen is produced for twelve months using exclusive materials such as amber, or Indian satinwood in a luxurious setting.

Once again, the Pen of the Year focuses on the core feature of the Graf von Faber-Castell Collection: wood in its noblest and most inspiring variations. The idea behind this year抯 pen comes from Countess Ottilie抯 private salon or drawing-room in the Faber-Castell castle, now over 100 years old, that is panelled in costly East Indies satinwood also known as lemonwood on account of its fragrant scent.

No fewer than 84 Satinwood rectangles are individually hand-made for the filigree herringbone pattern of the Pen of the Year 2008. Normally such a parquet pattern requires a plane surface. In the Pen of the Year 2008 an unconventional technique has been employed to transfer it to a cylindrical shape. No two segments are identical: each can be fitted at just a single position on the barrel and matched to its neighbours to produce precisely even joins. Then the barrel is repeatedly polished and varnished, a time-consuming process. The world抯 smallest parquet, on the surface of a pen, is a work of perfection.



Crafted with the utmost precision, the Pen of the Year 2008 combines elegant looks, an inimitable feel, and excellent writing qualities. The interplay that develops between the warmly shimmering satinwood tones and the cool platinum-plated metal parts is as impressive for its fine detail as for its brilliant overall impression. The masterpiece is crowned by a chessboard-faceted citrine gemstone set in the platinum-plated end cap.

The fountain pen uses the plunger filling system and has a bicoloured 18-carat gold nib with iridium tip.



The "Pen of the Year" edition highlights the Graf von Faber-Castell Collection's commitment to superior quality. The production period of each edition is strictly limited. This fine writing instrument edition results from a combination of using exclusive materials and ensuring elaborate craftsmanship over a period of one year.

To ensure this exclusive writing instrument gives you many years of writing pleasure, Graf von Faber-Castell is pleased to offer a complimentary annual service having your Pen of the Year checked, cleaned and maintained through their specialists. You are eligible for this service after registration of your Graf von Faber-Castell Pen of the Year on their web site (www.graf-von-faber-castell.com).
