Pensinasia - Fine Writing Instruments
Pensinasia is a collection of more than a decade of pens, fine writing instruments, and limited edition collectables. Over the past years, I have painstakingly detailed and photographed each pen I have owned, recording down every minute detail within this website. If you are a pen lover like me, you will find Pensinasia to be your definite source of knowledge to fountain pens.

Graf Von Faber Castell Limited Edition Pen of The Year 2010 Walnut Wood Fountain Pen

 

For the Pen of the Year 2010, Faber-Castell has returned to a process 0f the gunsmith’s art of case hardening.
On seeing the new pen one immediately notices the case-hardened metal parts and the fine
engravings.  The character of the case hardening is emphasized by elaborate engraving and a 24-carat gold inlay, inserted by hand.

Nowadays there are very few traditional workshops that can carry out these ancient skills in the way that the Pen of the Year 2010 demonstrates. The material of the barrel of the pen fully matches up to the claim of exclusivity:it is the valuable wood of the Caucasian walnut. Seasoned for many years, walnut wood is tough and inelastic: it does not warp or splinter. It also stands up better to compression and flexing forces than oak. It is the ideal wood for the stock of a gun – and for veryspecial writing implements. This variety of walnut possesses a beautiful figuring, with finebut marked patterns.

The valuable wood of the barrel and the splendid metal parts make the Pen of the Year 2010 an exclusive and individual fountain pen. The 18-carat bicolour gold nib is available in the widths F, M, and B, each one ‘run in’ by hand. The platinum-plated end cap protects the knob for the plunger mechanism, on which each pen is individually numbered. The case has a lid made of walnut veneer. A certificate testifies that the pen with its engraving is one of a limited edition.
