Graf von Faber Castell Special Limited Edition POY 2017 Vikings Black Fountain Pen
Made by craftsmen from choice materials, the Graf von Faber Castell Special Limited Edition POY 2017 Vikings Black Fountain Pen brings the Viking age into the present day in a fascinating way: something of the elegant verve with which the famed longboats hastened through the waves is apparent in every stroke of this pen. Such a discovery is worth grasping in the hand. The version with a tough anthracite-coloured PVD coating has a particularly masculine appeal. The special edition is limited to 230 fountain pens and 70 rollerball pens. 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 rollerball pen, which change their appearance with every movement. The fountain pen comes with an 18-carat gold nib with ruthenium plating that is inscribed by hand. Each of these writing implements is presented in a brightly polished black wood case.
About Graf von Faber Castell
