Graf von Faber Castell Pen of the Year 2007

Since 2003 each year Graf von Faber Castell have produced a limited edition superior oversized fountain pen, each produced for one year only and referred to as the Pen of the Year by GvFC. Every pen being individually numbered and presented in an exclusive luxury gift box with papers, brochure, and a certificate certifying that the pen is produced for a limited period only. A large 18k two tone nib is the beating heart of these fountain pens.

Above we have photographed the Graf von Faber Castell Pen of the Year 2007 in petrified wood, which having recently obtained, we now have for sale at Penbox. The pen has never been filled and is as originally supplied from Graf von Faber Castell. We feel that this pen will not be available for long, especially at this price, so grab it whilst you can.
