Samurai 2019

Graf Von Faber Castell

Limited Edition 

 

Graf von Faber-Castell's Pen of the Year for 2019 is inspired by traditional processes employed by Japansese sword makers. The barrel is magnolia wood which has been stained, painted, sanded and polished multiple times. It is inscribed in 24 carat gold varnish with a quote by Miyamoto Musashi, regarded by the Japanese as having been the greatest swordsman of all time: 'Today I win against myself of yesterday'. A metal plate engraved with the gold plated Japanese character for samurai adorns the ruthenium-coated cap. The end cap is also engraved with the symbol created by Musashi for the word 'tsuba' or hand guard, the device that protects the hand when holding the weapon.

Hand-crafted 18k gold nib coated in ruthenium and available in fine, medium, broad and extra-broad. Limited to 400 pieces and individually numbered. Supplied in a stunning, brightly-polished black wooden box complete with brochure and certificate of authenticity signed by Count Charles von Faber-Castell.
