This propelling pencil features Pernambuco Wood for the barrel and platinised metal components. Platinum is even more valuable than gold; it has a very hard and durable surface that does not oxidize. Pernambuco wood is extremely hard and durable – and correspondingly difficult to work. Natural variations in the grain and colouring mean that every writing instrument is unique.
The writing instrument uses break-resistant 0.7mm leads of hardness B with an integral reservoir to hold spare leads. Under the removable cap is a replaceable white eraser.
The pencil is part of Graf von Faber-Castell’s wonderful ‘Classic Collection’. The Classic Collection fountain pens, rollerball, propelling pencils and ball pens are designed as matching sets and are available in several variants.
Writing instruments in this range come with an exquisite gift box, which has a matt-finish and is made from wood. Inside it includes a draw-string fabric pouch, a small information booklet and an integral tray insert which has room for up to three implements.
