Graf von Faber Castell Classic Makassar Ballpoint Pen
Graf von Faber Castell Classic Makassar Ballpoint Pen is elaborately finished in the unusual combination of fine metals and wood. The barrel of this ballpoint pen is created from Makassar wood, tough the anthracite coloured PVD coating is made of titanium.
The fountain pens, roller-ball pens, ballpoints and propelling pencils in the Graf von Faber-Castell Classic Collection are designed as matchings sets and available in several variants. All four are available in reddish brown Pernambuco wood, matt black ebony, dark brown grenadilla wood or in a platinum-plated version. All three precious woods, i.e. Pernambuco which is normally used for violin bows, the very dark ebony as well as the grenadilla wood are extremely hard and durable, and correspendingly difficult to work. The natural variations in grain and colouring mean that every writing implement made from them is unique.
About Graf von Faber Castell
The legacy unveals from the idea of enclosing a thin graphite lead in a wooden casing was several hundred years old; it was not new when the ancestors of Faber Castell founded a pencil factory in 1761. It was only when the great great grandfather of Baron Lothar von Faber, who took over the family firm in 1839, was the first to turn the pencil into a genuity quality product of functionality and the world's First Brand Name writing implement.
Standards for the length, diameter and hardness of pencils; standards which apply till today. He was credited for creating a series of fascinating products which continued to set an example of Simplicity and Design.
The GrandFather of Count Anton von Faber Castell; Count Alexander zu Castell-Rudenhausen carried on this tradition. The Faber Castell company which takes its name from Count Anton's grandfather's marriage to Lothar von Faber's granddaughter Ottilie, is not only the oldest manufacturer of wood cased pencils, but also the world's best known name in graphite and colour pencils.
Graf von Faber Castell 's elegant design continued to reign till today more than 250 years later. With wonderful collections like the Pen of The Year POY and classic quality collections like the pernambuco wood, ebony and its iconic Perfect Pencil still the favourite of many generations to come.
Timeless design remains the heart of the company since then and will continue to be so to bring the life Simplicity Is A Luxury Itself; an embodiment of luxury of simplicity, harmonious combination of selected quality materials, aesthetic looks and a high standard of functionalism.
