Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.

The outer layer of the barrel is made of carefully selected Indian satinwood. Normally such a parquet pattern requires a plane surface. In the Pen of the Year 2008 an unconventional technique has been employed to transfer it to a cylindrical shape. No fewer than 84 rectangles have to be individually hand-made for the filigree herringbone pattern of the satinwood fountain pen. No two segments are identical: each can be fitted at just a single position on the barrel and matched to its neighbours to produce precisely even joins. Then the barrel is repeatedly polished and varnished, a time-consuming process. The worldā€™s smallest parquet, on the surface of a pen, is a work of perfection.

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.
