The Graf von Faber-Castell Pen of the Year 2012 Fountain Pen.
A fascinating encounter : A fascinating encounter: the deep structure of ancient wetland oak, whose beauty has been naturally wrought over thousands of years, together with gold, that lends a supernatural sheen to the most beautiful works of art created by mankind. A sensitive and masterly touch is demanded, if gold leaf is to mould perfectly to the graining of the oak barrel of the pen.
Particular artistry : The gold leaves are carefully applied by hand using a fine squirrel-hair brush. A 4 000-year-old technique is used that dates back to the Egyptians and is mastered by only a select few people today. Such an extraordinary craft demands particular artistry and skill.
Crafted by the masters : After studying old Venetian gilding techniques and winning the Bavarian State Design Award, the gilder and church painter Ernst D. Feldmann has achieved the almost impossible: Layer upon layer of 24-carat gold leaf is applied to the oak pen barrel in an intricate and detailed process. Embedded in resin, this reveals a unique pattern of reflections that only the purest gold can display.
Prestigious Presentation : Each individually numbered writing implement comes in an exclusive deep black wooden case. A certificate, signed personally by Ernst D. Feldmann, attests to the 24-carat leaf-gilding on the 1700 year old German oak wood, as well as to the limited edition to 1500 fountain pens. The high-gloss collector’s case with glass lid and two removable trays made of linden wood provides a masterly setting for any collector’s favourite pens.
