SALE: LAST MODEL Graf von Faber-Castell Pen of the Year 2009 Fou
The Pen of the Year 2009 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.

The wondrous mane and tail of a horse are not just naturally beautiful but also able to withstand the elements. Towards the end of the 18th century, horsehair began to enjoy a high status as an elegant material for chair coverings. Horsehair presents a special challenge. The tail hairs of a horse are relatively stiff and short, and so cannot be spun to a continuous thread. They certainly cannot be woven in the conventional way.

So as to create the filigree pattern of the Pen of the Year 2009, the hairs first have to be carefully selected for colour and uniform thickness. Then roughly 70 hairs are woven individually for each centimetre of fabric. That is extremely time-consuming. Hair by hair, a weave comes about with changing texture, light and dark, that contrasts so excitingly with the cool platinum-plated metal parts of the pen so that each one brings out the finest nuances in its own way. Every horsehair fountain pen is an absolutely unique work of art!

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

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 (
