Graf von Faber-Castell

Graf Von Faber Castell - This wonderful company was established near Nuemberg back in 1761. The founder was a cabinet maker, Kasper Faber. Today, eight generations later, the company still remains under family control. From the mid-19th century, it evolved into a world-renowned manufacturer of wood-cased pencils, both in graphite and colour. Under the owner, Baron Lothar von Faber, it soon became recognised as the producer of the first ever 'branded' lead pencil.

The Faber-Castell company takes its full name from Ottilie von Faber's 1898 marriage to Count Alexander zu Castell-Rüdenhausen, who came from one of the oldest noble families in Germany.

Since those early days, this prestigious brand has developed its expertise across the entire spectrum of writing instruments - fountain pens, ballpoint pens, rollerball pens and mechanical pencils.

Graf Von Faber-Castell has always cherished the importance of craftsmanship in the production of their writing instruments. However, successive generations have never lost sight of the importance of innovation and, when appropriate, have used the latest technology to further refine and perfect the manufacturing process of their writing instruments. 

The Collection

Graf von Faber-Castell offers an extensive array of fountain pens, propelling pencils, ballpoint and rollerball pens. The fountain pens typically use a cartridge/converter filling system, allowing the pen to be filled with ink from either an ink bottle or from hassle-free cartridges.

Casings

The fountain pens come in a variety of finishes, such as lacquered metal and wood. In the Classic Collection, slow growth hardwoods are used, such as Ebony, Pernambuco and Granadilla. The instruments in the Intuition Collection are made from glossy black resin. The Guilloche Collection is manufactured from craved dyed resin in coral, indigo, Sahara, and black, as well as several kinds of wood.

Nibs

Fountain pen nibs are either made from polished stainless steel or 18K gold. In each case, they are capped with a hard-wearing iridium metal tip.

Accessories

Complementing the writing instruments are a magnificent collection of desk and 'pocket accessories' - leather notepad holders, organisers, pen cases, wallets and card holders to name just a few.

Pen of the Year

Every year since 2003, Graf von Faber-Castell has produced a line of limited edition fountain pens, named the "Pen of the Year". With their matchless craftsmanship and limited production, these pens are regarded as among the world's most prized writing instruments. Each "Pen of the Year" has a nib crafted from 18-karat bicolour gold with a barrel made from a variety of exotic materials.
