Crafted with the utmost precision, the Pen of the Year 2008 combines elegant looks, an inimitable feel, and excellent writing qualities. No fewer than 84 Satinwood rectangles are individually hand-made for the filigree herringbone pattern of the Pen of the Year 2008. The numbered edition is crowned by a chessboard-facted citrine gemstone, platinized fittings and an 18-carat bicolour gold nib, carefully run in by hand.
The elaborate craftsmanship and the individual grain of the wood make each and every Pen of the Year 2008 a unique work of art. The 18-carat bicolour gold nib has been run in by hand and is available in widths F, M, and B. The platinum-plated cap conceals the knob for the plunger filling mechanism, on which each pen is individually numbered. A further noteworthy detail is the solid metal clip, hinged and spring-loaded.
The Pen of the Year 2008 comes in an exclusive wooden case with a beautiful brochure and a certificate. That bears the personal signature of Count Faber-Castell and attests that the pen is one of a limited edition and also that the material is selected genuine satinwood.
