Featuring a reddish-brown veined snakewood barrel, this limited-edition spin on Graf von Faber-Castell’s Classic Series is a stunner. Native to Brazil, snakewood is one of the most strikingly grained noble woods—and among the most expensive, too. It takes its name from the grain’s mottled, snakeskin-like pattern, which is especially prized in instrument making and fine works of art. For this pen, the wood is painstakingly waxed by hand and complemented by Graf von Faber-Castell’s signature fluting and high-gloss platinum-plated hardware. Finally, the two-tone 18-karat-gold nib is made almost exclusively manually in more than 100 steps. Anyone who owns this pen has something truly special. To commemorate the date the company was founded, only 1,761 pieces were created, and no two are exactly alike.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of nib size: extra-fine, fine, medium, or broad.
Graf von Faber-Castell has been in business since 1761, making it one of the world’s oldest manufacturers of writing instruments. Known not only for the quality of its products but also for its ability to balance tradition with innovation, this German company began as a pencil manufacturer before expanding to pens. And because pencils have long been a staple of the Graf von Faber-Castell line, the company’s Classic Series includes many unique wood styles.
