Graf von Faber-Castell Classic Fountain Pen
The style of the Classic collection combines the natural and warm charisma of wood with the cool elegance of platinum-plated surfaces in a unique way.The Classic writing implements come in platinum-plated versions, in ebony, in pernambuco or in grenadilla wood, each combined with platinized fittings and a finely ribbed barrel. The natural differences in grain and colour mean that every writing instrument made from them is unique.

All four precious woods, the reddisch brown Pernambuco, the expressive grained macassar,the very dark ebony as well as the grenadilla wood are extremely hard and durable, and correspondingly difficult to work. Thanks to their natural differences in grain and colour every writing instrument made from them is unique.
The platinized fountain pen, roller-ball pen, propelling pencil and ball pen are available with a purely platinized surface or a combination of platinized and wood. The effect is somewhat cooler than the silver-plated finish. Platinum is even more valuable than gold; it has a very hard and resistant surface that does not oxidize.
The writing implements made of solid sterling silver (925/1000) represent the highlight of the Graf von Faber-Castell collection.
