As Americans we mispronounce almost everything, e.g., Notre Dame, the Celtics, Volkwagen, Faber Castell. (Yet to avoid embarrassment we wisely do not even attempt the names of J Herbin inks.) So to answer the original question, we usually pronounce Baoer as 'bore' or as 'bare', either mangled pronounciation will do just fine, thank you.

 

I know of one auction site that lists Faber Vastell as "Fabakasuteru", I imagine it's a fairly universal phenomenon!

Hi Folks.

 

I think I asked the same question several years ago someplace here on FPN.  And I came to the conclusion that Baoer rhymes with Power or Flower.  The break between the syllables is new to me, though.  I guess I will have to incorporate that.
