Graf von Faber-Castell is the premium branch of this historic German company. Only the finest materials and hours of hand labor are used to produce these fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints. The Classic Platinum collection is the best of the best. Platinum plating covers each pen, more durable than silver and never oxidizes. Fountain pen 18k gold nibs are installed by hand. Screw on caps and grips are smooth and fluted, but the barrels are finely ribbed. Treat yourself or someone special to a Graf von Faber-Castell.
