Graf Von Faber Castell Pen of the Year 2017 (Vikings) 

PVD Edition 

 

The version with a tough anthracite-coloured PVD coating has a particularly masculine appeal.  Matt-grey smoked oak – the preferred wood for building the Viking ships – stands in exciting contrast to the gleaming metal parts of fountain pen and roller-ball pen, which change their appearance with every movement. A grey shimmering smoky quartz adorns the cap of all writing implements of this edition.

 

Each of these writing implements is presented in a brightly polished black wooden case. 

A certificate bearing the signature of Count Charles von Faber-Castell confirms that this is a limited edition

 

 

  • The name Graf von Faber-Castell is engraved in the end piece in runes
  • Individually numbered writing instruments
  • Exclusive, brightly polished black wooden box with an attractive brochure and the certificate of authenticity
  • An additional insert offers space for six more writing instruments
  • Limited to 500 pieces (230 PVD)

For inquiries email us at orders@airlineintl.com or call (915) 778-1234

Very pretty pen. Some of those pictures almost look like they were shot in black and white.

Hi,

Thanks for posting the pictures. Is it possible to provide dimensions of the pen? Length, section diameter and weight? Strangely, I cannot find this info on GvFC website. Usually this info is important.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not a fan, but I'm not into pens that have masculine appeal.  :D

I think that's the most appealing GvFC Pen of the Year yet.

Is it just me, or does anyone else immediately lose all interest in purchasing a pen that is exhibited by someone wearing gloves?  Its not a piece of forensic evidence, or a fragile, pre-historic artifact, its a new fountain pen!  That being said, it is a nice looking pen :D

If you were holding a ~$5,000 pen that you will be selling to someone, I should hope you would wear gloves as well  :D

Beautiful pen!


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

- Winston Churchill
