Wood has always played a special role in the history of Faber-Castell, and continues to do so to this day. The pioneering German house crafts noble woods in order to create exclusive writing instruments.
Even though they use them in different collections, it is in the Classic line where we can see the woods in all its glory. With them they create writing tools with fine ribbed bodies in matte black Macassar Ebony wood, in reddish brown Pernambuco wood or dark brown Grenadillo. These noble woods are of extreme hardness and laborious processing. Due to the natural variations in tone and texture, each of the pieces made with these woods is unique and unrepeatable.
Pernambuco wood has a fine, straight and uniform grain. It has great resistance to deformation, making it an ideal wood for the creation of durable fountain pens. Grenadillo wood is one of the hardest and densest woods in the world, considered a very durable species over time. And finally, Macassar Ebony wood: dense, with spectacular colors and patterns, since it is black but can have lighter grains.
These models are not only visually curious, but also functional, since they fit comfortably in the hand.
