In 1660, German cabinet maker Kaspar Faber began producing pencils. From these humble beginnings, a giant in the fine writing industry was born. In 1898 Count Alexander Castell joined the family and Faber-Castell was born. Post war rebuilding in Germany brought pen manufacturing to this iconic pencil firm. Bright packaging, the finest designs and materials, and a diverse range of products brought and kept this company to the forefront of the industry --where it remains to this day.
You will be so impressed when your Faber-Castell pen arrives. The fit and finish is unmatched in fine writing instruments; at any price. These unique Ambition fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints are no exception. Select from either dark coconut wood or reddish-brown pear wood for the barrel. Caps and tips on both are highly polished chromed metal with Faber-Castell's spring-loaded clips.
Decades ago, Faber-Castell began offering mechanical pencils in this balanced cigar shape. It became such a popular design, they extended their offering to fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints as well. The E-Motion Pure Black collection has every writing option so you can create your own matching set of favorite modes in serious, black anodized aluminum. The knurled barrel and smooth grip and top give each writer a balanced feel and appearance.
