The 2021 Graf von Faber-Castell Pen of the Year is inspired by medieval knights, their heroes, myths and legends. In those days, the strongest prevailed, therefore skillful sword fighting and the nature of his weapons played a central role in a knight’s life. Every one of the 375 fountain pens and 125 rollerball pens in this limited Pen of the Year edition is truly unique.
Each piece is adorned with a red faceted garnet with sunray cut, with the grip clad in leather.
To forge the knightly swords, medieval smiths used Dasmascus steel which was regarded as particularly hard while being flexible. Its extraordinary properties are achieved through repeated welding and folding of different types of steel which also produces the typical iridescent surface.
The fountain pens will be available with your choice of Fine, Medium, or Broad nibs and list at $5200.00. The rollerball lists at $4900.00
