These new writing instruments of individually grained ebony combine a design that is as incomparable as it is functional.
The partnership between German luxury brand Graf von Faber-Castell and the British luxury car maker Bentley began in 2018. Since then a limited edition collection celebrating Bentley’s 100th anniversary has beenlaunched in addition to the initial jointly developed series of writing instruments. The new “Grafvon Faber-Castell for Bentley” ebony series features a fountain pen (18-carat magnum bicolour gold nib in M, F, EF, B) for EUR 1,190; rollerball pen for EUR 780; and twist ballpoint pen for EUR 680. All pens come with their own elegant gift box.
An exclusive new collection of writing instruments offered by Bentley Motors and Graf von Faber-Castell.
The fountain pen, rollerball pen and ballpoint pen in the new “Graf von Faber-Castell for Bentley” series all guarantee an exceptional writing experience.
The barrel of the pens are made of sable black ebony – one of the most opulent and hardest of precious woods in the world – and are meticulously crafted by Graf von Faber-Castell. The metal parts on all of the writing instruments are platinum plated. The fountain pens also feature an 18-carat gold magnum nib. Its iridium tip delivers a smooth and refined writing experience and to ensure each nib is of outstanding quality, every single one is individually “run in” by hand.
Producing a showpiece of this calibre requires the passion for precision and technical know-how of a master craftsman. It takes over one hundred steps, most of which are completed by hand, until the nib finally achieves the perfect balance of hardness, tension and elasticity. This is why writing with this exclusive fountain pen is such an inimitable experience.
The dynamic styling of these pens is finished with Bentley’s iconic design elements: the cap is embellished with the signature knurling and Bentley “B”, while the front and end pieces are decorated with filigree knurled rings with the world-famous Bentley diamond pattern.
