Graf von Faber Castell Black Grained Leather Case for Two Pens
Made from selected French calfskin, the Graf von Faber Castell Black Grained Leather Case for Two Pens is tough but supple, strong yet with a certain amount of give. Calfskin is a material that lends itself to fine crafting and is extremely hardwearing. Grained leather is used for outer surfaces and smooth leather on the inside a combination with an appealing effect. The leather is butt-jointed and sewn by hand with a specially strong thread. The greatest precision and skill are needed when using a thread of a contrasting color; every stitch shows, and each one must be perfect. One advantage of Graf von Faber Castell Smooth Leather Two Pen Case is that it does not encourage tarnishing of silver writing implements. Only a few tanneries are able to produce such leather. Slim and tidy is the way to keep any pens.
