Put pen to paper with Graf von Faber-Castell’s luxury writing instruments
Just take a look at Graf von Faber-Castell’s Perfect Pencil, for example. At first glance, it might look like an elegant and understated pencil ideal for jotting notes or sketching, but it’s also an innovative answer to a common problem – both a sharpener and an eraser are concealed inside the polished protective caps at either end of the pencil, ensuring you’ll never be unnecessarily interrupted at a crucial point.
Graf von Faber-Castell’s beautiful fountain pens, too, are run in by hand and can be personalised with different nibs and a range of 18 shades of ink. The new Bentley Collection is particularly special. With myriad shared values, Graf von Faber-Castell teamed up with the Crewe luxury car manufacturer to create a dedicated range of fountain, rollerball, and ballpoint pens, as well as a matching leather case.
Resplendent in modern and eye-catching Bentley hues such as ‘Sequin Blue’, ‘Tungsten’, and ‘White Satin’, the polished caps feature the same knurling found in the cars’ interiors and the pen cases are handsewn in Italian calfskin leather.
More recently, the history-steeped company has applied its principles of quality, timeless design, and craftsmanship to the medium of leather and created a range of understated every-day and travel accessories. We particularly like the Cashmere Weekender, the Epsom iPhone covers, and the staplers and hole punchers, the latter of which are guaranteed to bring a touch of class to your desk and prove the perfect counterparts to your Graf von Faber-Castell writing instruments.
