There are some ideas that, while not necessarily unusual, still fall into the category of being somewhat exceptional. This “Pen of the Year 2010″ by Graf von Faber-Castell is one such creation with an aesthetic appeal that can’t go unnoticed. Buying its inspiration from the hunting rifles that belonged to Count Roland, this high-end writing instrument features the particular design “herringbone” carved into the wood to complete the processing of barrel of the pen. The processing is completed by an elaborate process of etching with an insert in pure gold. Containing a mix of precious materials and processes, this exclusive and unique pen has an 18-karat two-tone nib with hand engraved Graf von Faber-Castell mark along with a platinum-plated end cap embedded with burnished metal to protect the knob of plunger mechanism that also bears the numbering of this limited edition. This elegant writing instrument will be available early next year.
