  • Graf von Faber-Castell has released a wonderful and unique writing instrument as the Pen Of The Year 2016. 

    Black, masterly-painted lacquer panels placed in panelling made from flamed maple and set with a gilded frame have adorned the Vieux-Laque Room in Schönbrunn Palace since 1770. Here you will find a special expression of the deep love between Maria Theresa and Francis Stephen in craftsmanship perfected over thousands of years – lacquer art.

    This story is the inspiration for the Pen of the Year. Both editions come with an 18-carat, bicolour gold nib that is run in by hand. An end-cap protects the rotary knob of the plunger mechanism of the plunger-type fountain pen.

    • Platinum-plated barrel adorned by hand-ground plates made from deep black onyx and individually grained flamed maple
    • Individually numbered writing instruments
    • 18-carat bicolour gold nib, run in by hand
    • Cap of the pen is adorned by a faceted Onyx which is ground and polished by hand
    • Exclusive wooden box with additional insert with space for additional 6 writing instruments, high-quality brochure and a certificate of limitation
    • Limited to 500 pieces

  • The Pen of the Year 2022 is inspired by the Aztecs, their culture, aesthetics and religious rituals. The rare gemstone turquoise was considered one of the most valuable treasures of the Aztecs. The blue-green stone was used as a decoration on knives, shields and masks. In the end piece of the barrel, as well as in the top of the cap, the turquoise is embedded in form of small discs. An engraving in the turquoise shows the eagle and the god of the dead adorned with feathers, reflecting the power and aesthetics associated with him.

    The charcoal-grey barrel of the Pen of the Year 2022, which has a diamond-like carbon coating, is adorned with countless small skulls, which are inspired by the walls found in Temple Mayor, which were built from skulls lined up in rows. The grip of the Pen of the Year 2022 is made of obsidian, a precious stone of volcanic origin. Thus, each Pen of the Year 2022, limited to 375 fountain pens and 125 rollerballs, is unique.

    According to prophecy, the Aztecs were to find their new home at the place where an eagle sitting on a cactus devours a snake. This cactus is embodied in the shape of the cap of the Pen of the Year 2022. The Aztecs settled in the place that is now known as one of the largest cities in the world: Mexico City.

  • The name "Faber-Castell” was found in 1898 due to the marriage of cauntess Ottilie Freiin von Faber and earl Alexander Graf zu Castell-Rüdenhausen. To honor this event, two masterpiece have been launched, each made 1898 times.

    The body of the writing instrument is handmade in Germany, which is also mentioned on the pen itself, in silver and finely varnished after in their own specific colour. In the lid the letters AOFG are ingraved (Alexandre, Ottilie, Faber, Castell). Its limited character is also mentioned on the pen itself (and also on the corresponding certificate), but the individual pieces are not numbered.

    This fountain pen, called “Ottilie”, is lacquered in violet with a refined pattern which is inspired by the Otillie's room in the castle in Stein. The other pen, “Alexandre”, is lacquered in green, the colour of the cavalry which Alexandre zu Castelle belonged to. Moreover, this is the same colour in which the first pecil was commercialized (the "9000").

    The nib is made of 18 carats two-coloured gold, and is only available in the size Medium (M).

    This special pen will be delivered in nice giftpackaging.

    In combination with the Ottilie fountain pen, Graf von Faber-Castell launched a special ink colour, Violet Blue, of which both an ink bottle and cartridges are available.
