All about nib sizes
The world's smallest parquet made of Indian satinwood.

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.

Available to special order only.
